Fear - Quadrille

What worse is possible?
I fear these words
I have heard them often
When they were in pain
When they’d lost a lot
They said they’d lost all
I know of worse
I’ve heard stories
And tons I don’t know

Much worse is possible

  1. There may always be something worse. That realization may be the gift that helps those suffering out of their pain.

    1. I agree, Frank. It is the realization that encourage us to move on. Thanks

  2. Good point. I find myself grousing about something insignificant sometimes and then see someone or an article that helps me realized how very blessed I am and my complaints seem pathetic. Thanks for joining in, Nimi. Google won't let me comment using my wordpress blog. Victoria Slotto

    1. Hi Victoria. Thanks for your comment. I agree that one does complain and then has to remind oneself of 'platitudes' like 'count your blessings'.
      As for the google and wordpress issue, I am bad at all this. I have just chosen the easiest way I could figure to put my words out there. I hope it doesn't discourage you from coming back :)

  3. Good poem. Much better is always possible also.

    1. Thanks Mary. And I love your positive outlook. Thanks again...

  4. Ah! Your poem makes me Tremble for some unknown reason. Much worse is possible! Well done!

    1. Thanks, jp. When I thought of what I fear most, I thought of this. The routine worldly stuff is different, but this is the essence of my actual fear, I fear...

Penning thoughts of what you are feeling how can I? A few days when in material comforts life's essence was changing he was dying I felt shattered I had so much still family, and love, and home what happens when you lose it all? Do you lose yourself too? Enslaved, Uncertain Years on returning home they call it a rescue Am I happy? What am I returning to, I have a home? ©Nimi Arora Prompt by and Shared with- Poets United Midweek Motif - Human Trafficking
