Fear of the Unknown
Boom! Through the dust Came a rugged form Twisting and contorting its body Into unheard of shapes.
I stood by with my Heart racing and my hands Trying to wring themselves Free of tremors. God wouldn't greet Me this way, I thought— Surely, this thing is of the Devil.
That is where my mind Ran off to... It was in a hurry and Before I could get my feet To work, my mind was spinning Circles all around us. So, I said to my body, "It's now or never." And now came before I could lean into the wind.
The figure moaned, Groaned, and shouted Gurgly expletives, bothered By a persistent moon Lighting up the sky.
Fear of the UnknownHave I done something wrong? Is this my punishment?
Fear broke into my heart And chased me several blocks As I tried to outrun the Beast from the blue dust. One step, two steps, three steps And it was on my heels!
Before I could scream, My legs twitched, My arms flailed, and The sunlight stole a kiss. My eyes opened to a new day.
It was only a dream.
