10 Thing's I'm Not Afraid Of
They eat bugs, keep our world clean, live independently, rarely mean.... but... they could bite me, I could die, their pretty gross, I shouldn't lie.... oh.
They are loving, always sweet, kind to everyone they meet.... but... when their angry, or they've been hurt, they really put me on alert... oh.
They give shade, make me smile, a nice place to rest under for awhile... but... what if one was on fire? Or fell on me, left me dire.... oh.
Reading them lets me forget, takes me places, I don't regret... but... a book could give me knowledge I don't want, certain passages always haunt... oh.
Money lets me get things, and stuff is nice, happiness brings... but... what if I became obsessed? Only cared for things possessed... oh.
They make my life a cinch, can get anything in a pinch.... but... they take up so much time, what if they take more of what's mine.... oh.
Nothing scary there, lets me drift to places fair... but... feeds on my heart, changes my mood, what if to much left me skewed?
Big and puffy, pretty too, Nothing malicious they do... but... thousands of pounds of water, could this weight make me totter.... oh.
They tell time, keep me knowing, organized, life keeps flowing... but... what if time moves to fast, I get lost, stuck in the past... oh.
My little Sister
I love her, she means my life, causes nothing bad, no pain or strife... but... what if she leaves me, or I lose her, Or she hurts me, I couldn't' endure...
