FEAR

They are afraid of love and don’t know how to love
They are afraid of shadows and afraid of light
They are afraid to lose and are afraid of silence
Fear that gives fear of the fear that it gives

They are afraid of going up and are afraid of coming down
They are afraid of the night and of afraid of the blue
They are afraid to spit and afraid to hold back
Fear that gives fear of the fear that gives

Fear is the shadow that dread does not avoid
Fear is a trap that traps love
Fear is a switch that has turned off Life
Fear is a crack that has widened pain

I am afraid of  people and of solitude
Afraid of life and afraid of dying
Afraid of staying (being) and afraid of slipping away
Fear that gives fear of the fear that gives

Afraid to inflame, afraid to snuff out
I’m afraid of waiting and afraid to leave
I’m afraid to run and afraid to fall
Fear that gives fear of the fear that gives

Fear is a line that separates the world
Fear is a house where nobody goes
Fear is a noose that tightens the knot
Fear is a force not letting me go

They are afraid to laugh and afraid to cry
They are afraid of finding each other and afraid of not being
They are afraid to say and afraid to hear

Fear that gives fear of the fear that gives

I’m afraid of stopping and I’m afraid of advancing
Afraid to hold together and afraid to break
I’m afraid to insist and afraid to let live

Fear that gives fear of the fear that gives

Afraid to look deep, afraid to turn the corner
Afraid of ignoring and I’m afraid to cross the line
Afraid of losing the reins, afraid of plumbing the pose
I’m afraid of running out of energy, I”m afraid of wandering aimlessly
