Shall I Fall?

The Florentine Pietà
I fear the rain.
I worry about a plague.
A disaster is following me.
What begins will end.
I wait the days.
I see changes and pause.

My friend is careful.
My paranoia he rejects.
Because we agree on many things,
as days go by, I change.
My former anxiety is gone.
I will not fall.
I walk and have hope again.
