By Rhea Manish Mehta
Rhea is the daughter of Falguni and Manish Mehta. She has written this poem in relation to her Visual Arts theme in the IB Diploma. She thinks that all of us are afraid of something in this world even if we may not accept or consciously recognize it. Imagine life without being scared. Fear is very much a part of our emotions, but it actually plays a part in our reasons. That is why we are afraid.
Those nights when you lay wide awake,
Those dreams haunting you night and day,
Those things from which you ran away,
Those thoughts that stung you all the way.
There are a few things we all fear,
Even those who live on the highest gear,
Whether they’re broke or pioneers,
They’re all afraid, they all shed tears.
You may not imagine not being scared,
And dream of fearless ferocity,
Pride and glory at arm’s reach,
Rising at light’s velocity.
But you don’t see the real picture,
The reason why you’re scared,
You don’t see how it builds you,
While you’re in this bubble-trapped, ensnared.
