MY GREATEST FEAR

Written by: dakarai cobb

My greatest fear? My words will not be good
Enough to be read by any reader.
Wasted talent! Wasted words! Though, crowds should
Eat food for thought, respecting the feeder.
My greatest fear? My dream will escape me,
Somewhere between disappointment and hope;
Lost forever! Forever left to be
Hanging my head, from my very own rope.
My greatest fear? Not overcoming doubt!
A doubt that has infiltrated my mind
Without asking. I need to figure out
If I will ever get out of this bind!
     Day to day, month to month, year after year,
     A life without words is my greatest fear!
