There is a voice that’s very clear
Talking to me on the verge of freedom
Its sound is warm and reassuring
Stating simple obvious facts
But danger lies within such sentiments
Fear and anger have no place
Walking on the cracks in the pavement.
The irrational fears we have in our lives, when we are tired or stressed, that take over. Or is it just me!
