The Thing Known As Fear - Poem by Francis Duggan

On the spiritual journey to the higher self many have lost their way
Far too much criminal violence in the Human world of today
Though for their sins they know the price will be quite high to pay
Still old Moses Fifth Commandment some refuse to obey
It should be a basic human right that in the unlit park at night
That one without fear should be able to walk in the moonlight
But even in so called free Countries there is no guarantee
Of harm from another so it does seem to me
Though the people of such Countries live in a democracy
In name and name only they are known as free
To live free of violence from others should be a basic human right
But if without fear you cannot walk the streets at night
Sensing danger to you lurking everywhere near
Then you are a prisoner of the thing known as fear.
