Treasure Island

Kill or Be killed

(8/14/92 / Pittsburgh)

Fear's taking over


I fear life,
I fear death,
I fear happiness,

And everything in between.

I fear people,
I fear animals,
I fear rodents,

And everything in between.

I fear what I don't understand,
Shit, I fear what I do understand,
I fear what noone understands,
and everybody believes,

And everything in between,

Most of all I fear tomorrow and whatever it may bring.

    Well don't! is my advice KOBK! Fear is just an emotion, we can overcome it and tomorrow will come fast enough....It is good to have a healthy fear of what is or should be, it keeps us on the ball....but generally people are just people like you and me....just living our lives, is the best we can do. Smiling at you, taking all your fear alway with me....Tai (Report) Reply

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,
