People Scare Easy

People scare easy,

Say something nice,

And like Crown and Anchor,

They’ve scattered like dice.


People scare easy,

Just hold their hand,

And like feral cats,

They have scratched you and ran--


Far, far, away.

Why can’t you stay?

You scare so easily,

Like vampires fear day.


Not worth your time,

You fear of demise,

Of thrill and euphoria,

You create a dystopia,


That’s seduced your brain,

Devoured, so greasy.

Bravor is not in your favor,

You scare so easy.

      Yes some do scare easily but we have still got to be there for them as it could be us being there for them that ensures their happiness in the world.

        You’re absolutely right Goldfinch, reassurance and promise of safety is the best we could offer.
