Too scared

Too scared

A Poem by Bertha
"

Some choices in life scare us but they are worth it.

"
I was too sacred to take a step
Everyone told me how i would fall
The bricks aren't friendly and they are everywhere!
It was not my first time walking out
When it made sense to none but me
This time around , the difference?
Is that i was too scared.

I was too scared to take the wheel
That road would take me to a new rush
I have never been before
If i get lost i would have none to call
So i locked myself up
Not showing any gap
Sincerely, i am too scared

Bertha - there are times that we all experience being scared. I see from your profile that you seem to be interested in perhaps teaching. I taught for 45 years years before retiring. Looking back I can recall times that I was scared, but I knew that my students counted on me and I found the courage to go on, at times having to admit that "I didn't know - the answer."

Take care and courage - Dave

To be honest, I can't tell if your narrator is successful in overcoming her fears. That part of your message is a little mysterious, which is OK. Your message is relatable, since we all go into things with some fear. I think some people are immobilized by fear & this is how your narrator seems to be. I am the type of person who loves that fear & it keeps me seeking new things in life. You have a creative way to express an idea about living life, making it into a balanced experience of how this might feel (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Hi, Bertha. I like the specific details you have chosen for your poem. For example: the bricks aren't friendly, the road would take me to a new rush, and I locked myself up not showing any gaps. These lines work great to offer a real sense of the emotional state of the speaker and offer a physical point of reference for the reader. I find that any details that lend themselves to things that can be experienced with the senses help to convey a sense of something palpable to the reader. This always helps to bring the reader into congruence with the speaker or at least understanding because we often respond to emotional and sensory triggers. So, for me those details work really well.

I see you are pretty new to Writers' Cafe, so welcome! Best of luck in your writing.
