Fear - Poem by AHO Speaks

Four letters that form such a simple sound
But one that can capture, induce and hold you bound
It is truly one seed of that called the evil one
As tho to remove from your mind our earthly sun.

Its existence breeds loneliness, pain and greed
To be destroyed only by love and the good deed
Some have used fear on an equal basis with love
To believe in a fearful God that would send the dove.

Others to use for human mental pain
To shackle the mind and body; time and time again
The perpetrators of fear who sow its seeds
Not out of righteousness but more for evil deeds.

It has been freely used in the structures of man
To induce or capture and make us understand
Fear itself is never displayed or open to view
It hides in its own darkness without a hue.

Never to stand in the light of the sun
Nor ever to be victorious or stand as one
Power is where you feed and make others act
To punish and control and that is a fact.

The destruction of humanity is your primary goal
You who are the carrier of loneliness and without soul
Your incapable of sustaining your own greed
So you use others to plant your seed.

Pehaps at one time you were a great star
But because of your greed a black hole you are
Never to reflect yourself because you lack light
A symbol of ugliness rather than might.

Humanity continues to struggle for its existence
Despite your attempts for influence and resistance
Tho your victories have been many and cruel
Over humanity you shall never rule.

As we have perished many times in the past
Your victories were short lived and never did last
So fear tho you may continue because of greed
You shall perish by eating your very own seed.
