I Anticipate Disaster - Poem by Melanie Emikohe

I anticipate disaster
before it bumps into my way;
gradually accumulated
the stress wrinkles.

I fence myself
with walls within walls;
every stranger's smile
is a conspired event.

    People can hurt with their treacherous tongue, especially the ones closest to you, and it sounds like you've had the same experience. It's good to be prepared, but don't let it scare you. This is a wonderful poem, full of sadness and pain that I think everyone can relate to.

    Sounds like you've been hurt. It's good to protect yourself but they're not all out to get you. On the other hand, 'Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you' (Cobain)
