Fear

In 100, by Dom on December 15, 2018 at 9:48 am

I know why you’re here, Fear.

To protect me from lions and disease and spears

To keep me alive in a world years gone by

I know why you assume the worst

Better safe than sorry

But I’m tired.

Tired of the reminders of the fragility around me

Tired of constant cross-examination of every idea

Tired of regret

There are no spears here, no enemies hiding in the brush

This world calls out for joy. For appreciation, love, passion, excitement, happiness. We all deserve these luxuries.

I know why you’re here, Fear. But right now, I don’t need you.
