My Greatest Fear

My Greatest Fear

A Poem by misfit_joker

It should be pretty self-explanatory.

I am afraid of spiders
I have no shame in that
They are creepy and disgusting
Yes I cringe at the mere sight of them
Yet they are not my greatest fear

I am afraid of falling from heights
For this I also have no shame 
When I look down and there's nothing beneath my feet 
Yes this puts me at the greatest of unease
Yet this is not my greatest fear

I am afraid of performing in large crowds
Shame still not present here
Will they reject what I poured my heart into
Yes my body shakes when I am asked to
Yet this in not my greatest fear

I have told you things that I fear most
But there's one left that cannot compare
No not even close

I am afraid that I'll grow old alone
Friends and family leaving me behind
Years will pass as I wait
No I can't bare the thought of it
Because this is my greatest fear

I simply want to share a little bit of my world and bring it to yours. I do not believe in sticking with one general genre of writing because it limits the possibilities. Please enjoy more..
