as just background noise

what gets forgot

by those of us who grew up

in houses of fear

is that we do

we get past that level of threat

or at least we learned to live with it

as just background noise

& what gets forgot

by those who grew up happy

no trauma no violence

is that this can be overcome

& when they find their own fears

whether real or imagined

they don’t have the experience

the live through day to day

to know

understand

that they can get past these

or at least learn to live with it

as just background noise
