I Am Very Fearful! ! ! - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

I am fearful of the day and night,
I am fearful of the life and death,
I am fearful of the anger and the threat,
I am fearful of the animals that bite,
I am fearful of evenings, when foxes howl,
I am fearful of the shades that appear,
I am fearful of the trees where honeybees have hives,
I am fearful of the oceans, where I can’t swim,
I am fearful of the ladders that take me up,
I am fearful of the human, who have cunning schemes,
I am fearful of the dark and light,
When I hesitate to explore all these with great might,
I am not really fearful of the days, yet to arrive,
Let those days have the courage to face me eye to eye.

    Dear Sir,
    It is a nice recovery of a person who is afraid of doing some bold work.
    Very Nice.

    I invite you to read my poems and give your views.

    'Hollow Of Life'
    A hollow log
    Is the home of termite
    And a hollow heart
    Is the breeding ground
    Of the severe fight
    The fight between good and bad
    you can read more of it on my page if you wish to do so.
