Fear - Poem by Tentative Poet

He's sure deep within
As sure as if it were
Stabbing his insides

This long sliver of doubt
Driving an unnamed fear
Through his heavy heart

No longer joyous
Now ponderous and deliberate
Unable to soar

The release he knows
But dreads

Consequences will follow
The rush of a fire-storm
That shall scorch

All their lives
And leave indelible marks
Upon small hearts

His greatest fear
