No Greater Fright - Poem by Elle Barr

There is no greater fright,
Than to lose sight,
Of who you are,
And what you believe.

The measure of braveness,
Can only be found,
Deep inside oneself,
Fighting amidst difficulties.

There are worse things,
Besides death,
And that is living everyday,
In bondage.

Captivated by money,
And become stripped off,
From the right to complain,
Nothing was gained.

Only thyself,
Has the power for change,
If that’s really what’s wanted,
Then do something.

For the change of everything,
Start acting,
And do one’s part,
From the beginning….
