How can footsteps scare you,

Are you afraid of humans?

We phantoms are just air,

Can pass through you in a jiffy,

And witches are lucky as

They have brooms to ride,

So no footsteps!

And ghosts are imaginary,

Still if you believe,

Can  be good or bad

Depends on what you are!

Perhaps they just take revenge,

Just wait for Karma,but still ?

These footsteps!

You dread footsteps only when,

Human beings turn into monsters,

Break and tear innocent souls,

An abused child,

A helpless woman,

A tortured youth,

A  frightened old man,

They know up to what extent,

They can go.


What do you think?
