fear, is not to be shamed. it is nobody’s sin to be fearful, to be afraid of the dark, monsters beneath beds, horror movies or soggy cereal. these eventually slide, downward into a slippery spiral. the list, seeks no end. sooner than later, we begin counting the steps we take; being afraid of milk going sour an unlocked door. fear is not simply a stranger to us, but the rival; an enemy; the evil twin of the two. a step into the dark; fear is unwanted.
we have been conditioned to believe, and with such stubbornness; that fear is a weakness and must cease all existence in our lives. in order for us to function, to persist in this continuous cycle of life. as a dire longing, to exist; we attempt to cast these grave fears, out of our lives; and into the wild.
