The fear of fearing
Throughout time, mankind has sinned,
Yet there is no greater sin than to fear.
It is a burden that we place upon our shoulders,
Willingly and knowingly we accept it as ourselves.
We encompass our very existence within it
And never dare to let it go until it has consumed our very soul.
We gaze into its eyes as it stares right back at us,
Instilling more doubt, hatred and deceit.
Yet do we vanquish it with the purity of our soul?
We relinquish in its arms as it engulfs us whole.
