Jason’s poem reminded me of this one, so I thought I’d add it to the “bug collection”!  😮

 (Formatted with center alignment — which I couldn’t accomplish here — this poem even looks a bit like a cockroach. 😉 )

 

Cockroaches

Cockroaches creeping
in black of night
from the cracks and crevices
of my psyche

An ambush
in the still, silent hours
of night

Doubts & Uncertainties
Fears & Failures
Injuries & Insecurities

Skittish, they scatter
With encroaching light

Why is it easier to be
Brave
After the
Sunrise?
