Declaration

Photo by Jou00e3o Cabral on Pexels.com

Seeded fear grew from a childhood

Whereas all my blurry eyes seen

Merely a dark mirror staring back

And within that ominous glass

In muted tones of black and grey

A silhouette of my own image

Held within life’s forest of dark

Palisades stalks also did appear

With Ravens, Crows, and Hoot Owls

Mocking my attempt at any escape

Like tethered shadows at every turn

They haunted my precious memories  

Turning my dreams- into nightmares

My heart refused surrender… freeing me
