Quartet-Four Poems

Hello all.

I'm not sure if anyone is interested but here's a few poems.

                                         Shut it out

Shut out the fear
The hate
The worry
And the pain.
Shut out the anger
And let in the profane.
Let in the death
Let in the hurt
The suffering and the pity.

Cause that’s all you have;
Just you and your furies.


Is a demon.
A little monster that haunts the useless in the night.
That stalks the faithful
And abhors the creator,
So that there is no rest,
No caring and no light.


Pitiful dirges sing in the cool night air,
Where dead men walk and living no fear,
Where old things stur in older chambers
And hate the living with their fear;
With their pity.


I shall not fear,
Fear is the mind killer,
Fear is the little shit that beats at a boy when he’s already terrified.
Fear is a mind reader
A god among men.

It's a very spiritually and environmentally concerned book series that's chalk full of intrigue, amazing characters, interesting and original ideas and a deep and enthralling world. The influence of his can be seen many other science-fiction series such as Star Wars, with the planet Tatooine,
the Fallout video game series, with it's drug known as Mentats---a direct reference to the human computers in the Dune u…
