D Darkness …
Darkness crawls towards you, emitting horror
You are scared, fearful
What would happen if fear went? Just gone?
Flying out of our souls. Gone.
Jumping, naked, off a cliff
Diving deep under water for a dare
Yourself in the snow, sitting, silently with only shorts and a belly top
Is this fearlessness or stupidity
What if fear IS common sense? These things aren't stupid now, are they? They are fearless. They aren't brave.
Braveness is only possible with fear.
These actions are fearless
Without fear we are stupid
Cleverness and fear are what makes up common sense
Fear is needed
A world without fear is a world of fools
You ain't no fool…..
You know we need fear, don't you?
