What is fear?
A distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain?
A threat that is real? Or imagined?
The feeling or condition of being afraid.
Fear. It is a being that thrives off of the innocence of others wishing to be saved.
What is it to you?
A fear of heights? Or of falling?
The dark? Or from it what is calling?
Not I, see I come from the streets
Where there is no room for you and everybody rocks sneaks
Where police are at every single corner
Anxious to make arrests like everyone's a foreigner
But no a tall person like me is not afraid
My fears manifest inside my inner membrane
Inside of my home I’m alone
Bearing witness to abuse from an insane
My brothers cower whilst I clutch onto the phone
Feeling useless as fists and words are thrown
Looking for the baby blankey I had outgrown
Phone slapped out of my hand
My mind scrambles for a piece of hope that I could grope
Physically asleep but mentally awake
Thinking about the night which road will it take?
Ever stayed awake from that bump in the night?
Try being awakened by that thing; doesn't it sound like a fright?
Waking up in the morning and pretending everything is all right?
A fear of leaving and what happens to what's left?
A dream of college to which my step dad is its theft
A fear of leaving and coming back to nothing left
My parents bugging? Aiight wait till college BET!
I'm trembling no I’m seizing
I have a fear... I know we all do
From past experiences and what we've all been through
My mom has sold her soul to the devil of her perfect being
