In a world full of fear,

Where the weak are easy bait,

If you shed half a tear,

It will seal your entire fate.

No matter how hard you try,

Or how hard you work,

There is always some one close by,

Waiting for it to get dark.

You look over your shoulder,

Every step you take,

And hope you don’t get older,

There’s too much at stake.

Afraid to take a further step,

Afraid to close your eyes at night,

So scared, you bite your lower lip,

And try to stay out of sight.

A cold & ruthless world-

We live in.

Every one is soiled,

That’s a given.

So, duck your head

And tighten your scarf

And pray the shadow

Is afraid of the dark.
