Examples of life-determining papers: birth & death certificates, passports, degrees, contracts, legal documents of any kind, money/cheques…etc.

Challenge Rules 

Fear

FearFear is a warning 

A signal to stop and think

Reassess your life


A strong stabbing pain

Ordering intervention

Growing over time


Indecisiveness 

A paralysing feeling

Hiding true meaning


Trusting your instinct

Will kill the horror within

Prisoner released

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge

The Effects of Modern Expectations

The line between what is real and what is not is blurred and faded away

Thus the demons and doubts in my head decided to come out and play

As they run around, I sit here on this silent night and pray and pray

Wishing that God would hear my prayer and save my soul today

For these fears and anxieties are driving me insane in every way

And the darkness has consumed my all, leaving  behind ashes of grey

But I still dream of a future not too far, one that’s here to stay

So I continue to plead in prayer “Dear God, please return what has been taken away”

And once again I hope they’re heard, for the madness I cannot delay
