Lighting Fears

In the fade shadows come alive
Horrors present themselves
Where life cannot be seen
When the sun leaves us for the day
Our fears awaken sleeping trees
They control us in the dim light
The masters of our beating hearts
Our quickened pulse and anxieties
To conquer these tremble-makers
The darkness where they cloak themselves
We need to illuminate their hide
Place light on their specifics
And pull them down individually
