I’m Not Afraid


Linked to  The Purple Tree House . Vb

I’m not afraid of kitty cats

With nasty little claws

I’m not afraid of growling dogs

And slashing, gnashing jaws


I’m not afraid of bully boys

Or wriggly, jiggly snakes

And those itsy bitsy spiders

Do not give me the shakes


But little girls with pretty curls

Can make me blush and sweat

My dad says, “Son, it’s just begun

You ain’t seen nothing yet!”

    Profoundly real! Love that you could carry the image for a bit, then letting go, circle back to childhood to find this powerful image.
