Unknown Terror by Christina de Vries (poem)

The news of it all over the place
A newfound terror from an unknown face
A fear of not knowing what to look for
Of everything falling apart behind the next door

Has the terrorists already won
Now that we fear our safety as gone
Police tell us to not change our ways
To be on alert but continue with normal days

The contradiction of acting like all is good
When the experts state that it isn’t as it should
We wait for the news of something to change
This world we live in turning ever more strange

Do we fight an enemy we don’t yet know
Or do we continue the ongoing show?
Where we act like we have nothing to fear
While the screens tell us that “undefined” is drawing near

Me, I’m left baffled, a little scared and uncertain
Trying to see truth behind a closed curtain
Not knowing is the part that scares me
With this fear are we as free as we thought to be?

But what can one do but to wait
For the news we don’t know about unknown faith
I choose to believe in our love and not the hate
Whatever happens we will rise on the changing date

As a nation I know we have the heart
To see past the endings and find a start
A way to move forward at necessary cost
I refuse to see us as a nation already lost!
