Fear // by Anna C. (January 2018)

If I traveled far away,
I couldn't hide.
If I sailed the seven seas,
You'd follow me.

If I heard a song,
I'd follow it.
I'd chase it.
You would understand.

If I traveled all over,
And never said any thing.
If I didn't leave a note,
You'd come for me.

I know these things,
Because I've done them all.
I've boarded ships,
And sailed the seas.

Many places I have been.
Far and wide,
I've tried to hide.
Yet you followed me.

You never left.
You were always there.
You chased me.
Followed my path.

You're fear.
