Debilitation.⠀

Limiting.⠀

Heart-throbbing.⠀

Nauseating.⠀

It eats you up inside,⠀

holds you back from truly living,⠀

loving,⠀

life.⠀

F E A R.⠀

A four-letter word,⠀

yet so potent,⠀

powerful,⠀

tearing open what we hide.⠀

Shuttering,⠀

shivering,⠀

blood-rushing,⠀

chaos in the mind.⠀

F E A R.⠀

Experiences,⠀

perhaps memories,⠀

past-happenings,⠀

not in the now.⠀

And even if in the now,⠀

focus, focus.⠀

Is it real?⠀

Or is it just in the mind?⠀

F E A R.⠀

Overcome.⠀

Free the self.⠀

Flow with the now.⠀

Breathe out, the heaviness.⠀

I may not overcometoday,⠀

or tomorrow,⠀

but I know I will,⠀

because beyond, there is light.
