Farewell To Fear, I Sing -S-L-O-W-L-Y.
A nameless fear grips me
when your name is uttered
fragments of shunned past
rush in and push me back
into that inferno, where you reign,
where you smile and scythe,
where you engulf more than what you need.
-my only arms against you-
winter will have you frozen
in breath and pith, squeeze
life out of you,
burn the 'demon -you' to ashes;
make earth a better abode
for the meek ones' right to their share .
Your vile grin, diminished now,
my fear begone and low,
a lone bone gnawed by mongrel canines,
not any more.
My heart gathers grit
bit by bit,with each beating pulse
...my prayers answered,
to bright moments of future I march.
... my farewell song to fear,
I sing.... S-L-O-W-L-Y.
