THE SEED OF FEAR

Eprobles-poetby E.P.Robles28 Jan 2020

i eat a seed of fear everyday like a vitamin of weakness ;
it brings me tears.

i know the color of it’s pill -- a weakness-pale of failure i try to fight but today i fear it consumes me and so i’m gone

it’s never fair; i have so much to give but the taste of weakness remains and if you ever love stay away from me
i have too many fears and i cannot remain
i am a shadow beneath

the footfalls all people who live and walk through life
i am a tear in the crack of the sidewalk you walk
just a face imprinted

in fear but i remember when i was alive
it was everything but now the seed i’ve
grown; what i’ve become the seed of fear
