of Juan Diego and his family crossing the border into Texas
of the poor
of Joey who is going to move into section 8 housing next to me
of Abdul Aziz and his wife Fatima wearing her funny headscarf
of the press
of the New York Times and its Pulitzer prizes
of losing my Second Amendment rights
of them taking my collection of 38’s and my AR-15
of losing my profits
of paying capital gains taxes
of losing my male white privilege
of being the only Hampton Plunkett in the county
of free and fair elections
of Maria Escobar voting
of losing my political office
of facing a primary for my stand against the president
of being shamed by the president on Twitter
of witnesses to the truth
of Mitt Romney
What if he’s right?
What if he is speaking the truth?
What is truth, anyway?
1 thought on “I Am Afraid”
I like. This work
It is more memorable and effective to communicate by drawing out the readers emotion from his soul and heart and have a look through them as the reader. The pictures contribute to drawing out those emotions and feelings. Short sentences. Balanced with three word sentences. Like a church litany
This is more effective than cadence and rhyme.
Keep up the good work.
