I Am Afraid... Poem by ellery lim

I Am Afraid...

Rating: 5.0

I am afraid of the millions of ways
For a man to die
In the millions of days
I am afraid of the sea of people
That can end your days
Silent as a ripple
I am afraid of nature as a whole
They wipe out the cities
The young child and the old
I am afraid of mine lifelong dreams
For a little failure
Will tear it at the seams
I am afraid to love and be loved
For out of a million
How many are true love
I am afraid of technology
For the smarter we get
The richer controls me
I am afraid of my identity
For I don’t want to know
Who is the real me.
I am afraid of sight, smell and touch
For I know our reality
Belongs to such
I am afraid of seeing my own death
Foresee calamity
Suffering’s all that is left
I am afraid of death.
Am I not
For living is a torture
With that many thoughts.
