Today Mama Told Me About Fear

I can’t tell you how dangerous this insect is

I pray you never find out

She is slow but destructive

Don’t let her crawl in

Don’t let fear crawl in

She would eat away at the curtains of your confidence

She would borage holes in the boxes of your hard work

She would insert her lethal poison in your pot of dreams

And when she feels at home

She would invite her children;

Self-pity and regret 

To come join in
