Fear Poem

Facing My Fears Poem

I realize that I've been running from myself.


© Kindall Perez
I'm running out of breath
I can't believe it's so hard to breathe
My heart's pounding in my chest
As I wonder if IT found me
I hide under the covers and pretend I'm invisible
Then I turn around and IT is still there
I scream and pray IT would just go away
I'm running and running but IT is
Right behind me
I've been running from this thing for 5 years now
I stop running and decide to face my fears
Once and for all
As I stand face to face to what has caused me
So much misery and pain
I stop
I look deeper and deeper into ITs eyes
Then I realize that IT is me.
