Moving Beyond Fear (March 26, 2016)


www.bloomberg.com
At what point
Can we say
Never again
To "never again"?

Once more
We're huddling
In fear
Within our homes.

Jumping at
The slightest thing
Like a person
Who has PTSD
With our hyper-vigilance.

With each
New restriction
We impose
Upon ourselves
In the name
Of self-protection.

Thus
Giving our attackers
An additional moral victory
Over us.

Sadly
Something
I know
From personal experience.

Reclaiming
My own life
From those
Who terrorized me
In the past.

For you
Can't reason
With a fanatic
Who is bent
Upon destruction
And death.

Except
To continue on
Living life
Without fear.

Author's note: Hope, the fear and hatemongers, of the Republican Party, are reading this poem, and taking notes. For there is nothing, such as, a perfect wall or system, to keep out  or stop those, who we view, as hostile combatants, within our borders. Just asked, the former Soviet Union, with its heavily manned Berlin Wall, who tried to prevent Germans, from fleeing, into West Germany.
