Watchful Eyes

Location

They watch me close.

Can they guess the next move?

I keep my pose.

So many try to shove.

Watchful eyes

It keeps me afraid.

They pester my thoughts.

It's as if I've left a debt unpaid.

Like I've missed a few spots.

Watchful eyes. 

It will be tough.

It is difficult to be certain. 

I know the road is rough.

But somday I will pull back the curtain.

Eyes watching.
