Be not Afraid, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Be Not Afraid

Be not Afraid

He walked strong, straight into the darkened night
His shadow having been long out of sight
The moon that night was not be his beacon
He moves on to a voice that seems to beckon

What can be so important we may ask
Thinking that this be a dangerous task
Can there be such compelling inner strife
That without a question he’d risk his life

We will never know why such devotion
He was murdered in an altercation
For a sum of money he didn’t carry
Alone he died in a lifeless alley

From this event a lesson to be taught
So this fearless man did not die for naught
If there shall be a strong truth you perceived
Give everything until it be achieved
