Scared - Poem by jenney burrow

The voice I hear
that gets me through the day
has gone down to a whisper
that shakes my soul

The uneasiness I feel
in the bottom of my heart
makes my mind
doubt the way I feel

The pain I remember
from a long time past
fills my senses
and puts me on alert

The smile that used to fill my lips
has found it's way somewhere
into the back of my once
so called fantastic childhood

taking this step
will change my life
in a direction I have no control

My eyes are open
I look every which way
but I cannot see
what's in front of me

my hand reaches out
to touch anything near
but the only thing I feel
is the emptiness in my stomach

how consuming it seems
I welcome the urge
to scream out loud
and let me still know I'm here.
