I wrote it in March of 2004:

I am called
Yet I cannot follow
I am chastised
Yet I cannot obey
The fear has kept me well
I have imprisoned myself
With the fear of your confrontation
Till there is no need for your threat
For the worst punishment
Is continued reason for the fear
Yet a day will come
Dare I say it has already
A day when I realize
That I am not afraid anymore
Only angry
