My Deepest Fears

My Deepest Fears

To be imprisoned and grow accustom to my cell
To witness true love but never love at all
To sing like an angel but my voice falls on deaf ears
To live beyond my children while in my golden years
To lie in bed with a snake between my legs
To cry out loud for help but my voice doth fade
To visit my child in prison from year to year
To be eaten alive by any varmint at all
To work hard the day accomplishing nary a thing
To lose my dear wife as my breath does cease 
To open my eye after the grave
To feel hot bothered tortured and in pain
In knowing the lord my God shuns his face

    These are all GREAT ways to express various fears. But if you chose one, which would it be? I think opening your eyes in your own grave. OOOOH, how creepy, but the last two you wrote of are the worst!
