Dizain: Underlying Fear


The limited experience of youth
Focused as only blood-shot eyes can see
Who live lives breeding pure anger as proof
With the surge the urge wakes purpose to be
Illuminate a life led aimlessly
The belligerent voices of clenched fists
Cast echoes where sense no longer exists
The louder one yells the less one can hear
There’s no escaping what your soul insists
Greet the face of your underlying fear


Dizain: This particular form was a favorite of 15th and 16th century French poets, but it has also been employed in English by the likes of Philip Sidney and John Keats.
