Everyone has their demons to slay, but not all of them are ugly. Therein lies the problem.

The Fear Of Within


A black palfrey

A white steed

A good person

A black deed


Into a strange land

I shudder to go

Of places and people

Did I ever know


Honor and truth

Are not common tools

In this dark place of

Misguided fools


Fog and mist

And mystery abound

And every step is a fright

Every sight a queer sound


A veil of pretense

That covers naught good

Impedes my travels

As if in moving I could


Escape my own fate

Rewrite my own play

Correct my mistakes

Make my wrongs go away


Guilty questions intrude

Forgive and forget?

Face facts, make amends

Sometimes itís not yet


Time to be relieved

Of the burden of sin

Sometimes one has to live

With the fear of within



Kathy Adams
