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.

  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 :)

    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...
