a poem about


Liliana Kohann

What a fear has overtaken me now
A fear bigger than my heart
It is so present here
That its heartbeat I hear

Its presence takes over
everything around,
my world,  my dreams,
and I... can’t be found

I disappear
In the face of fear
And I don’t know why
I can’t look into its eye

Maybe I sense death...
Or maybe I fear
That once fear is gone
I... would have to appear.

* I wrote this poem in difficult times for me. For over a month I lived scared and uncertain of the future for me and my three little children. In this poem I gather courage to look into this fear. It was one of those life-changing moments. When my hand wrote the last sentence, I got chills all over my whole body. I saw thatI will have become stronger than I ever thought I could be.
