I am scared of what I’ll find
Behind the closed doors
I’ve been hidden from
I am scared of the stories
I’ve heard about the world
I can’t stay ignorant anymore
I have to go out there
But I’m scared of what’s out there
Inhumane is in itself an irony
Mocking, teasing, suicide
Abuse, rape, murder
I’m scared I’ll be a victim
If I stay out too late
If I express myself
I have been hidden behind the walls of shelter
Of my father, of my brother
But what of those
Who are left naked in this world?
I am scared
Of what might happen to them
This powerfully raw poem is about being scared to explore the world around us because of all the terrible things that are going on. Even though we feel the need for change we are sometimes simultaneously afraid of this change, what it may mean for us and how it may affect our lives.
