Afraid Of Never Knowing Fear (To Frances Bean Cobain) - Poem by Aram Stefanian
The real YOU turns loose and floats in the air, looking down
At the useless shell of your former body in amazement,
Feeling light and careless, so unafraid of the unknown.
There's no pain, you're filled with euphony of the firmament:
A bright unearthly light is waiting for you in the distance,
And then you meet a grim guide who moves you away from the light.
Your consciousness realizes that to heaven you are denied admittance,
The demon of gloom expects you to freak in the realm of eternal night.
You wish you could get back to earth, though it's too late.
Having no eyes, you see clearly your loved ones and feel nostalgic.
A little girl awoke from a deep sleep and heard, ''Baby, I lie in wait
For rebirth; it was a bitter fight, but I beat out death by magic.''
