Pericles Sophocleous


Fear


Blinding conscious thought
You think you will win
Covering all bases
Yet this does not change a thing

You merely fuel my fire
Yes I am scared but wonder
What will be the outcome
If I follow my desire

You push me to new heights
You spread my boundaries wide
Despite you I will conquer every fight
and solemnly swear to never ever hide

For it is you that must run
As my beating heart will hunt
and destroy anyone who obscures the finish line on this journey I have begun

Fear, become thy ally
No longer be thou enemy
I will not fall, how can I how can I
This is not why you were sent to me

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
