Fear


Fear is what hides within us
And festers like a deadly disease
An evil brought alive through thought
It can corrupt us with ease

Fear is a panther
Hiding in your shadow
Two yellow eyes affixed on its prey
It is the bringer of sorrow

Fear is what hides in the closet
Or even under your bed
The thoughts of monsters
And demons and the walking dead

Fear is irrational, a phobia
Of spiders and clowns
Of heights and death
The phobia of getting a frown

I cannot describe the terror of fear
The dark cloud within the mind
The drive to do unspeakable things
An evil that lurks in every kind

Long ago, so very long ago
I learned about the plague of fear
And I learned the weakness it displays
It can be conquered with just a single tear
