Day 11: fear

i am told to fear the city in which i sleep
there is no solace to be found in these streets
just a people
broken by the economy
and me
a girl
who's never been afraid to walk home late
a day in her life
how this city will shake her to the core
even in the safest of space
make her wonder how strong she is
and if maybe she was born of something softer
sand like
not worthy of these
flashing lights
