POEM 290: OF FEAR AND INDECISION


My feet is unsteady
though the music is not yet ready

My heart trembles at the silent calls
of fear.
Who knows what lurks out there?

When the drum rolls,
will my feebleness survive the fall?

What if the prayer I pray
feeds the fear I fear?

My feet is unsteady
stand,
run,
I don’t know what!
