#48 (on meeting fear)

Die Natur kennt keine Vernichtung, nur Metamorphose.

-Anaxogaras

I allowed myself

to pause

because I needed to

to not feel

when emotions

were too much to bear

regrowing a shell

similar to the one

I used to live in

but not quite


 

no more silent tears

I don’t bask in my fears

anymore

I acknowledge them

I face them

I let them pass

for the biggest fears cannot

be fought against

without losing parts of yourself


the fear of losing

the ones you love

just proves

that you love.
