My Greatest Fear I


A pal of mine

Asked me yesterday

‘What’s your greatest fear’

I was taken aback

B’cos he was the second person

In the whole Earth to ask me that question

I recalled, the first people received a false answer

But told the second person yesterday

The Truth!

My greatest fear

Is something i can’t control

Something that is outside my reach

Something I have no say over

Mr. Death!!

Wow! Really?

Well, partially ‘Yes’

Can’t still fathom that entity

Called Mr. Death

Can’t control life and death

And that weakens my spirit to bleed.
