Day 22 of NaPoWriMo sees me writing my poem in between takes of a film shoot today. I was playing DCI Tracy Stanton – although the poem has nothing to do with the film!
What Are You Afraid Of?
What are you afraid of? Why you looking ’round?
With what’s in front of you there’s much love to be found
You’ve got me not knowing if I’m coming or going
Pick yourself up off the ground
What are you afraid of? What you looking for?
I ain’t going nowhere, come inside and close the door
You got me not seeing just what to believe in
It’s becoming such a bore
There’s no such thing as perfect, is that what you want?
You fill my world with if’s and but’s, all you do is taunt
If it’s not me, then you know what it will be?
Your thoughts I’ll always taunt
