Cowards - Poem by Jonny Brackney

why do people
seem to be
closed
and
purposefully
naive?
it seems that they view
conciousness
as weakness and vulnerability.
i prefer to be
open.
to pour myself
into anyone's hands
and accept the consequences.
they may be safe,
and I may be
torn.
but the fools will rot
and be forgotten,
in the darkness of the
unknown.
i cannot help
but loathe
this disgusting
fear
amongst humans.
