You fear me
Do not fear me
You fear me because you see my past and your world has made you feel that I am what I did
Free me

You fear me because my truth is clear
My silence never golden and my intentions revealed
Know me

You fear me because I am tall yet you fear me because I am short
You see in me my ancestors, their faults, their trials their mistakes
You fear me yet you envy me
Be me

You fear me because I am black
You fear me because I am white
You fear my appearance yet my frame has no colour my eyes have no compassion and my heart is as the snow in the Everest
Embrace me

You fear me because of fear itself yet you do not know what fear can be
You fear me yet you do not know me
Release me

You fear me when you stand before me
You fear me because I make you cry I make you laugh I make you wonder
Understand me

You fear me because I have power.
The power to make you feel
The power to make you think
The power to kill and the power to let live
You make me your decider
Control me

You fear me
Do not fear me
You fear me because of my looks
You fear me because of my stance
You fear me because of my love my hate or lack thereof
You envy me my hair my eyes my all

You fear me
You fear me because in me you see you

Mirror mirror on the wall
Yes! The fairest of them all

Qamani became my friend recently, and among similar tastes in music- we share the gift of having a hand at poetry. He hadn’t written in eons (as a writer even a week feels like forever), and was inspired to write this by life and our friendship. Hope you all enjoy this. Please do comment. Much love and alphabetical sprinkles from me.
