The Sounds of Fear

I hear the sounds
They sound like fear
And no they aren’t a scream

They are the quiet of shallow breaths
Like a boulder on your chest
They are the voices
Of the nightly news
Of CEOs full of their own material consequence

The sounds of women
Getting botox
Not wanting their eyes to show
The self disdain in their thoughts

They are the convictions
Of righteous right
Preaching right so wrong
Love reserved for the followers

Fear is the sounds of the bricks being laid
To build the wall
between you and I
There is no safety on either side

I hear the sounds
They sound like fear
And it makes me want to scream.
