Us Prisoners Of Fear - Poem by Francis Duggan

We lock our doors us prisoners of fear
And dread our neighbour to us ever near
And we close our blinds for to keep prying eyes away
And fear surrounds us every night and day.

We leave our fortress for to work and play maybe
But in our hearts we never can live free
For we even fear the things we cannot see
And we are prisoners of our insecurity.

Around our homes no prison walls topped with razor wire
And we can come and go as we desire
Yet we are not free though many may feel so
And fear is with us everywhere we go.

We lock our door and close our window blind
And we hide ourselves away from our own kind
But freedom as such we may never gain
And as prisoners of our fear we will remain.
