A Child's Worst Fear

When children are afraid
of monsters under the bed,
parents comfort them,
and tell them it's all in their head.

When children are afraid
of the sounds of the night
parents take them
and hold them tight.

Some children are afraid of water
because they cannot swim.
Some children are afraid to play games
because they cannot win.

What is a child's graetest fear?
It's not something that they show.
A child's greatest fear is something that even they don't know.

A child's greatest fear
is seeing through an adult's eyes.
When that fear becomes a reality,
that is when childhood innocence truly dies.
