Fear is...

by Marquesas   Apr 2, 2015

Fear, an inordinate response
A reaction to what is unknown
An allergy to tomorrow
A sickness to progress
Hate, Anger, Meaningless Violence
All symptoms to the same illness
We use alcohol, drugs and sex
To ease it, numb it
The cure so simple
An unconditional show of kindness
Subtle shows of compassion
Reasons to be hopeful
But it's easier to not change
Because we fear change
Staying the same
Ironic, to have fear for the one thing
That we need most
And so continues our self-destructive cycle...
