Scared Of Life

Young or old
Black or white
Everybody has the right
To live daily without fear
That's happening everywhere
Going out's no longer fun
When you're watching everyone
Making sure they won't attack
Shoving a knife in your back
Listening to favorite tunes
While walking in the afternoon
Is scary when your all alone
Afraid someone will break your bones
Taking a refreshing shower
After working out for hours
Is starting to freak you out
An intruders breaking in your house
You are left with doubts and maybes
Someone new watching your babies
As you sing karaoke songs
Scared she will do something wrong
Living this way shouldn't be
Part of our society
Always looking with scared eyes
Thinking it's your time to die
Reacting every time you hear
A noise that leaves you shocked in fear
All because there are folks
Who think it's a funny joke
To make this earth a hellish place
Frightened women carry mace
Swords, weapons and loaded guns
When did this whole world become
A circle of hate and violence
Everybody needs to silence
These activities going down
Before we're all graves in the ground

    The horrors portrayed in this piece are so real, Part of the The Walking Dead's Season 3 Slogan "Fear the Living" should be taken very seriously. Again, Robin, thanks for writing about what's current and for raising a consciousness through your work.
