The fear of being known


To be known is to be heard
through ears around the world
to be known is to be seen
by everyone in any way they please
Most people wish for this
to be known
be seen
be heard
but i wish to be secret
to hide away my words
a simple line in verse
is all im willing to give
why must i tell more?
you dont need my life to live.
Some seem to try so hard
to be as big as heavens above
some seem to rebel against me
'If your not seen your not loved'
this line may seem so logical
so true and knowing and yet
there someday will be someone
with whom i just havent met.
Someone will come
theyll notice and theyll see
i just have to wait
who will that some one be?
But until that day has come
I'll write here all alone
until that day has come
i'll have fear of being known.

    at the age of 16 i was not expecting such kind of excellent words/feelings from you. you've got so much inside..all you need is to give it a shape like you gave this one. And i agree with you..Don't know why people run for fame, when we are best as we are. Keep writing dear :) (Report) Reply

Before we grow old and die.
