He Fears The Bogeyman

By Emile Pinet

There’s an innate love in the heart of Man
but His insecurities shade its glow.
And hate and bigotry visibly show
although His soul interjects when it can;
But still a child, He fears the bogeyman
and seeing injustice, He lets it go.
Blind to storms, He sees only the rainbow,
convincing Himself, it’s part of God’s plan.

Evil overshadows the light of good,
anonymity is gained in the dark.
And wearing blinders, tethered to rumors,
we mesh with the system as robots would.
And yet, the heart of Man fans each spent spark,
for fear is cancer; and love kills tumors.
