Fear - Being near to death
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Gripping fear stalks me
Sending a chill down my spine,
Providence is hurting me,
Is this the last step of mine?

The reaper is ever so grim,
Did I step a step too many?
Danger lurks around the corner so trim,
Did I walk a walk too many?

Silence, it chides me,
Oblivion marks its fingers,
Darkness of the soul warns me,
Solitude wreaks its anger.

It is the fear of the unknown,
(It is) the fear of the wrath,
(It is) the fear of being non-existent,
(It is) the fear of my end. (Yes it is)

Constancy is taking its toll,
Of doing nothing but wait,
This pessimistic world awaits my end,
As I look forward from my own end.



 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you don’t,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That today’s efforts will pay for tomorrow’s fun.

Hey Danny,
I was in a huge shell when I wrote the piece, in a deep hole. Looking back, I am not sure I remember that period in my life that well. I guess it is better to let bygones be bygones...


thanks for taking some time to read and comment.
