I fear people

I fear people People who are wearing colorful masks Hiding poisoned daggers in their casks I'm afraid of people Whom over their head Carry the banner of benediction Then again at night carry salt to rub on my abrasions I am afraid of people Out of their mouths comes mesmerizing words An ax is what they are holding behind their swords Do you think they won’t break my trusting core? I'm afraid of people They lie and call it knowledge, do evil and declare it courage. Their eyes filled with lust so foul I am really afraid of these people I am so afraid that I crouch and hide in the cellar People’s shadows are dancing on the wall And I tremble and curl myself in a ball I know it well I have to go and buy myself a disguise Plus a dagger dipped in malice Shouldn’t I forget to secure a heart of stone Tomorrow I will got to become one of these folks!

Hi Rahy. Before I feared deep waters and heights, but realized it's people who create fear, and make others to fear. Congrats for having your work featured in the Poetry Soup home page! ;-)

Thank you Skat! It's great to be here. My poems are originally in Farsi but I try to translate them to English and put them here. It's still hard for me to begin a poem in English as it's my second language. I am a working mom who enjoys putting words together to express her feelings ( usually frustrations :) Can't wait to read your writings! xoxo
