Fearing Life

Life

A crooked path before us

 A ragged race we run

A 9-to-5 grind-to-dust

To keep pace with everyone


We take some time to breathe

A few weeks every year

Before getting back to life

That’s often ruled by fear


Fear about finances

Fear about jobs

Fear about COVID

and Fascist-led mobs


Fear about terrorism

the Taliban and ISIS

Fear for America’s Democracy-crisis


Fear for our planet

increasingly warming

Fear of our fear

which is constantly forming


When emersed in fear

We don’t live our life

The roses and sunshine

Give way to our strife

And we just live to survive

On the edge of a knife
