Frogs And Snails Of Hell

He was killing frogs and snails with a stick or feet,

smashing their skulls and shells.

Because they were yucky and evil

And he said they were from Hell.

But, secretly, he was just afraid of them.

Then, once walking near a pond

He slipped and fell down to the ground.

Broke his leg and couldn’t move.

A small frog was approaching him

And snail from the other side.

They stared at him with their small eyes.

Constantly approaching to him

But never getting near.

He is paralyzed by fear

And can’t do anything

Cannot move but they can.

He is terrified. And this is Hell.

As the old saying goes, "There is nothing fearful, but fear itself."

Ahh... Fear. The great paralyzer. Fear also is the destroyer of freedom as people allow "rulers" to impose restrictions on them in order to feel safe.

Fear itself is the ultimate fear! And also paralyzer. Something might not be powerful but you give it power with your fear, you take your own power from yourself. Thanks for both insightful comments, I appreciate it very much!
