Embracing Fears - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Silently embracing many fears, leashing them to inner strait
jackets - afraid to let them go.
Silently crying - no tears falling - slipping into oblivion to keep
from remembering.
Escalating rumors within a mind - connecting unrelated topics to
make true stories.
Filled with anxiety, daring not to tread upon pages of someone
else's history - falling helplessly along the way.
Never being able to walk upright - crawling on all fours - searching
relentlessly for what you do not know.
Standing at corridors of mindless sacrifice - do you walk on or lie
down, dying - never making a sound in your defense?
Wondering forever whether your life has been worth living or has it
been useless from the start?
