An Enemy to Overcome


By:- Ranjeeta N Ghai

I fear…
Standing at the railings,
Lest my mobile goes crashing down,
Jumping over a drain,
Lest I’ll fall within,
Traveling in a flight,
Lest turbulence brings my plane crashing down


I fear…
Going into the OT,
Lest I don’t come out alive,
Sleeping in the dark,
Lest the wandering spirits take my soul away,
Getting into a lift,
Lest I get stuck between the doors.


I fear…
Climbing the heights
Lest I go down pummeling on my head,
Walking the streets alone,
Lest I’m accosted by moving shadows,
The unknown; rejection,
Lest I can’t pull away in time,
The natural calamities,
Lest I don’t have resources to fulfill the needs. 


I fear…
Living in Fear of fears attack,
Sometimes, Feeling quite alone;
It doesn’t make sense,
But it’s all too real..!
Coming in all shapes and sizes,
Bad experiences; catching me off guard.


Fear: Embarrassing; leading to more,
Needing a powerful ally; confidence,
Wanting to be strong and in control,
Breaking even,
From the prison of fears,
Breaking the autonomy of fear on me,
 shall find my freedom.
