A Fear in My Heart

There's a fear in my heart
A vision on my mind,
That someday I'd be lost.
Walking down the road
Among the ones who are lost.
A fear of ample pride,
A seed which outweighs
A million skies.
A fear of a light,
Which would make
A believer go blind.
Oh, there’s a fear in my heart,
That someday my deeds
Would fall short,
Infront of the one
Who knows what hides
In every heart.

~A.Z
