The Battle of Hope and Fear, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

The Battle of Hope and Fear

Our very lives exist on hope and fear.
It is hope that helps beat back the dark night,
But it succumbs to what comes in the light,
Causing anxiety when things aren’t clear.

Fear is fostering more than just a tear,
Where all hope will easily take its flight,
And deepest fears take on a deathly fight,
As with a knife any hope fear will shear.

Is there a force fear cannot overcome?
It appears what still remains is our faith,
That we can bring back lives to be as one.

Is anarchy what our lives have become?
Will in our future all to be seen is wraith?
Life can’t be saved at a point of a gun!
