I fear you and facing you makes me tremble
Internally because I dare not let the world see me vulnerable.
I run in the opposite direction when you present yourself.
Hiding behind excuses as to why you are here to harm me.
I’d climb a mountain, bungee jump, and battle a cobra before I dare spar with you.
You’ve beaten me within breathes of my life and for that I stand still in your presence.
Bullied by you
I turn and hide at your emergence.
Now I look at you and embrace you.
When I sense you I lean in to accept you!
Fear looks like an opportunity.
The space where love and compassion meet.
A open field of opportunity
Fear feels like excitement
Fear is the confirmation you are living
