My Biggest Fear poem

What is my biggest fear? 

One simple word, 

pplease don’t snear, 

or laugh, 

but, “future” is my biggest fear. 

you may laugh, 

or question “why,” 

but to understand, 

you’d have to walk,

with me, down a twisting, rocky unpaved road.

This “road”, my life, 

is surrounded by a moat of uncertanty. 

A life, 

with a physical deformity, 

leaving the affected, 

to often wonder,

or worry, 

what will the future,

of my life hold for me?

A job? 

who would hire,

despite my medical needs, 

and the expenses of an aid or someone to help me.

Will I marry? 

Or have Children? 

If I do, will my children, too,

have a disability? fear of my future,

my biggest enemy.
