Scared

A poem by Caitlin Mann, sophomore English Major

I’m scared of living life

But never feeling alive


A part of me dies

Each second I spend stuck inside


The mountains have a voice

And they’re speaking directly to me


Like the call of God to a sinner

A faith so strong it fractures my bones


Tears break through

Pouring down my cheeks


Like all the waterfalls I’ll never see

They land in puddles at my feet


The weight of the pulling is nearly killing me

But I have to resist


If I’m to survive in this cruel world

Of plastic and forced government rules


But if I had my way

I’d live


Actually live
