Dear Fear

Dear Fear

Of night, you say “stay put”
Of day, you say “beware”
Of stairs, you say “don’t skip”
Of machines, you say “might impair”

Of dawn, you say “wait for the sun”
Of sun, you say “shade, shade”
Of shade, you say “it’s dark”
Of light, you say “eyes! Please fade!”

Of life, you say “nurture for future”
Of future, you say “run”
Of love, you say “painful”
Of hate, you say “shun”

Dear fear, you’re so contradicting
Nevertheless attached to my fate
Hence, I personify you
As like human, you build, you extirpate
