Fear and Family

Fear fills the cold air
people walk past as if they don't care
running to a place where its safe to hide
fearing the worst so you cry inside

not sure what to do
you call the family who loves you
they always give the best advice
and are always there day or night

if you need someone to lean on they are the ones to go to
they tell you what you should do
family isn't always by blood relation
they are people who help you through every situation

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
