I Fear But Musn'T Confess - Poem by Maya Took
I'm afraid to wander alone in the dark,
Afraid of the neighbourhood trees,
Afraid of a non-moon sky,
And of the sting of bees.
I'm afraid of insects,
Afraid of being alone,
Afraid of the stars falling,
Afraid that things go wrong.
Afraid of taking a cub alone,
Afraid of HichHikes too,
Afraid of rapers, theives and drugs,
My fears are not too few.
But cannot speak of those fears,
Not even to me on my own,
For my last little Courage,
Which is held by a thread,
Will be lost and gone.
