Though comfortably asleep With a doll by my side, Often I was terrified A chimera could lurk In the dark!
Also from a distance When a dog bark I saw it stark A hyena with a Horn was out People to attack Capable to pose Its grotesque face Behind my back.
II) A boy
Smote by A dream object To anxiety I was subject. As she was Inaccessibly beautiful Self conscious I couldn't be cool Terrified "What if Before her eyes I prove a fool!" Nor could I pursue The endeavour --winning her heart-- 'Cause, topsy-turvy, to me She turned an object of terror!
III) An adult
I was questioning myself Whether"With my collogues, Could I rub a shoulder? If not better."
Compared with neighbours Why,why and why Financially I could not stand Stand shoulder high?
IV) A senior citizen
Putting under a question Mark my health, I was beset To lustfully inherit My wealth My son or wife, Conspiring with Heinous neighbours, Could spell my death.
Enemies in the past, What is more The misdeeds of my wife , Which are rife, Trailing by my mind Bad days me remind!
Oft with an axe To grind My self I find.
I found true what I learnt in developmental psychology.
