Treasure Island

The Thin Veil (Fear)


the thin veil that
seperates us from each other
is only fear disguised,

fear
....of
.......ourselves....

fear of the reflection
of ourselves in each other....

fear
....of
......our
. .......own
...........failures...

fear< br>....of
......our
........own
........ ..mortality!
