By Mark I. Kirkmeyer || Poem Categories

Controlled Fear country as flag
He managed for years
To overcome his fears
When jumping so high
When bullets fly
He controlled his fear

In all he did fear was there
Causing caution and care
In when building fall
Answering emergency call
He controlled his fear

Fear overwhelming now
Driving and tearing down
No of harm or the grave
Fear of the violent wave
Uncontrolled fear
