Life Away From Knife - Poem by Jacinth III Suico

I’ve never been afraid of the dark
I’ve never been afraid of strangers
That night I can only hear dog barks
Nothing else more than wind’s whisper

A man from behind suddenly appear
Unknowingly he has a hidden spear
He called on me so softly
As I approach him so gently

An inexpungible experience of my life
As he grab my arms with force
That fatal moment, I started to lose
While he holds me he pointed a knife

A sudden decision has to be done
For a treasure or a life to gone
I never regret of having that choice
Now that you can still hear my voice

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This writing was based on my real life experience where I was held-up for the first time. It was a traumatic event for me and in order to express how scared I was I wrote this poem.
