Life lends itself to fear:
We fear the future, knowing how violent our world is,
Who knows where I may stand tomorrow?
We fear for our success,
If not for success who will want me?
We fear our fellow man, not knowing what lies behind his smile,
I grip the lighter in my pocket for lack of a hand to hold.
We fear the the dark and the unknown at dusk,
If you fear the wolves, stay out of the forest.
I write prose, not poetry, so bear with me if you can ;)
