Harold, Age 13, Purcellville, VA


He feels it in his body, the quaking of his hands.
In his mind he saw the horror of death.
he laughed at fear, but at night he trembled.
He fights his dreams knowing that it is his dream that fights him.
He craves the fear, knowing it will destroy him.
It is his vessel, house, and his eternity.
He must forget his past and live his life.
Fear may scare him in the darkest places of the world.
He shall embrace it.
He is crazy with fear.
He must escape his world.
He must tame it like a dog.
He draws his sword, knowing he can win.
It is his mistress waiting for him to come home.
The city is his; he rules all.
