Fear Itself

how can i stand up to my fears

when my fears are not something to stand up to?

how do i fight the unexplainable?

how do i face a fear of nothing?


as a part of the generation of overcomers ,

of mind over matter,

i have once again 

lost my mind

to something that doesn’t matter.


if all I have to fear

is fear itself,

then I have no chance 


i cannot face my fears

when fear is the one thing I’m afraid of.
