Fear, it’s so distant- it’s near.
It’s hard to explain except to say,
when you think it’s farthest away,
you find it here.
Fear, it’s so consuming- it’s nothing.
It eats up all of your hope,
till you are nothing but a shadow,
you are only left with it.
Fear, it’s so paralyzing- it’s moving.
It suffocates you,
till you run or fight but it stays like glue,
you move with it.
Fear, it’s so deadly- it’s awakening.
It kills all confidence,
till you cower in a corner realizing you are nothing,
you accept it.
Fear it’s so human- only we despise it!
