Day 16 –OctWriPoMo — The Next Life

Quite the list

of things that

go bump in the night.

For a person

who feels like the

Wonder Woman

of trauma survivors

there sure are a lot

of them left.

 

OK, here’s one:

fear of showing fear.

Back in the day,

showing fear

was carte blanche

to the abuser.

There shall be

no weak link

in this broken chain.

 

Another:

fear of telling fears.

Big Brother is alive

In His & Her

Many Forms.

There Is a

Google Algorithm

on each one of us,

calculated word by word

post by post

like by like

emoji by emoji.

This is the recipe

they will build

our nightmares from.

It will be an

Injected Memory

That will be real enough

for our reincarnation

as androids.

  1. “fear of showing fear.” Absolutely. I experienced this just yesterday, walking in my neighborhood to the yips and barks of a dog that would not stop following me. All the way I said to myself, “Do not show your fear.” Thank you. xoA
