Fear


Fear is running
In the opposite direction
When you see a dog

Fear is
Not knowing if you will awake
The next day

Fear is screaming
When you see a spider

Fear is shuddering
When you see a snake

Fear is
Not knowing when you will have your next meal

Fear is whatever a human-being
Says it is
