Afraid

— Vicki L. Harvey

What do you do with afraid?
Cut it into a million stars.
Throw them to the heavens
to light up your night.

Do not be afraid of fear!

Remember when you were young,
nothing would matter.

Building objects out of white clouds
Against’ blue skies
pretending you could fly
away from adversity.

Making sand castles
with tiny grains of sand.

Creating a verse about roses
and letting the scent spread
and settle.

Watching the hatchlings
in the well made nest
not ready to depart.

I will not look at afraid
as an un-written sonnet.

I will travel head on through
The knolls to reach the tower
of faith.

I will not crumble!
