I’m scared to go out…

Because I don’t want to get it
Because that would mean I help spread it
But there’s no one else who is able to do it
And supplies need to be replenished.
So I wear the mask and say a prayer
That I may not be included in the statistics
And that this sickness, never touches my family.

Hallow Halloween

The clock strikes midnight and you’re all alone

An eerie feeling washes over you then you hear a low moan

The floorboards creek but you’re standing still

Your heart now beating fast and suddenly a chill!

Someone or something is wailing in the distance

You now wish you have someone else for assistance

As something is slowly creeping its way to you

And you have a feeling it wouldn’t just say “boo!”

The darkness is hiding whatever is coming while you are now more aware of your fears

You say a silent prayer but it doesn’t stop your tears

You hold your breath as you know the thing is going to get you

Suddenly! You think you hear something coo

You turn around slowly and what do you see?

A mirror showing a reflection of yourself that’s as pale as can be.

Tears For Aleppo

I worry of what to wear

Yet there is a side in the world, somewhere 

Where they worry for their lives.
I listen to music,

They listen to bombings

Nowhere is safe

My heart breaks.
I watch the news

They watch their loved ones die

For them I cry

And pray for their sake.
I  shed tears and share a prayer

For Aleppo

Thunder, Rain, and Lightning

Thunder roared and I became deaf
I got so scared I have no courage left
It mocked me and played my fears
I hid under the sheets, tried to pocket my fears.

Rain was knocking at my window
It was trying to comfort me, I know
Softly it whispered a song
Told me everything’s alright,
Nothing is wrong

Lightning flashed, it saw my fearful face
I trembled uncontrollably on my small space
It reached for me, not sure if it was being friendly
I closed my eyes and tried to sleep serenely
