Poem 81- Scared of the Dark

if it was so bad, why did you bear it?
couldnt you have ran away,
left all those fears behind and
started a new life.
i think in the end we're all scared of the guns.

if it was so bad, why did you bear it?
it would have been so so easy just
to scream and sream until someone came,
opened your mouth and roared at
the sky, let go of all those emotions,
but in the end we're all scared of being heard.

if it was so bad, why did you bear it?
a greater woman would have fought
tooth and nail, hand and foot.
tore at anything that pulled her down,
but in the end we're all scared of hurting someone.

if it was so bad, why did you open your eyes?
-i think in the end we're all scared of the dark.
