Fear - Poem by Lora Seger

I hate myself,
I hate my life,
I know that a slice, a bang, or the sea
Will take it all away.
But I hesitate.
It's not fear I feel.
To take my life to escape,
would be selfish,
to all those people who fight.
Fight for their right to live and argue their existence to themselves.
I hate being selfish.
I don't want to be selfish.
So I endure.
Whatever pain I might come upon.

    Yeah, I hesitate too, for different reasons than you mentioned though.
    An honest poem, I like that. -Kylie M. Lynch
