What Is It?

what is it about their stories that frightens you most?
   is it the sound of the voices of those usually silenced;
   is it the inconvenience of their truth;
   is it the loss of assumptions that once were  believed;
   is it the fact that pretending it isn’t so is no longer an option;
   is it the shattered idols once held so dear;
   is it the temptation to continue to ignore what has been heard;
   is it the weight of responsibility that now comes with knowing?
what is it about their stories that frightens you most?
