Worst of All | A Poem by Guy Farmer

He was afraid of
Peace and love
An all it might do
To upend his life,
The time he’d have
To spend looking inward –
Examining his warts –
Why he believed
What he did –
His abiding mistrust of
Others and championing
Of causes that
Damaged others.
Worst of all,
He’d have to spend
Time with himself.
