Know that what you flee will eventually find you!

Zain Khalid

The fear echoes loudly, conspiring and sly,
The chamber lamps flicker with a rhythmic sigh,
As the distant clock's ticking resonates nigh,
Silence stumbles, screaming out its cry.


Often, the young mind falls into its little depth,                                                                                                                                                                  

Every minute feeling rises and restlessly manifest,                                                                                                                                                            

The heart pounds heavy, with deep eerie breaths,     

Endless screeches reverberate, never to be kept.


Know that what you flee will eventually find you,
Binding you down, to your knees, it will subdue you,
Truth can never be changed, always to remind you,
In your worst moments, it will surely surround you.


What is to come is a mystery yet to be known,
Anticipation of what's to come is never wrong,
As life presents a diverging path, uncertainty shred,
Knowing the better, often lesser, one mostly misstep.

  • Comment from author about the poem: The poem explores the theme of fear and its effects on the mind and body. The first stanza sets the tone, describing an eerie atmosphere with flickering lamps and the sound of a ticking clock. The second stanza describes the experience of fear in more detail, with the young mind falling into a deep, restless state and the heart pounding with eerie breaths. The third stanza suggests that avoiding what one fears will not make it go away and that the truth will eventually catch up to you.\r\n\r\nThe final stanza reflects on the uncertainty of the future and the importance of facing it with courage, despite the potential for missteps. The poem overall encourages readers to confront their fears and uncertainties rather than avoiding them, as they are an inevitable part of life.
