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

Fresh food



Fear is the confirmation you are living
