Fear

Scared and cowering
It is as if the world has lost all its light
But I forget, that is only in my corner
Fear, is no longer a feeling

Dark and cold,
It is like the end has come
But I know, it is only for me
Fear, is now a reality

I’ve always been a minority
To belong is absolutely foreign to me
Even at home I’m an outsider
Even if I belong I differ

Everyone struggles to say my name
One wrong syllable is often an error so tame
My name screams outsider
My skin highlights how I differ

I fear both acceptance and prejudice
Neither do I trust the law nor the justice
Because no one cares about the outsider
I’ll always seem like an intruder
