I've never been one for fear-
I don't fear the dark
I don't fear hights
Not spiders, nor snakes
I don't fear a challenge
I don't fear confrontation
I am not afraid to feel fear
but there is one thing that scares me more than anything.
I fear death-
not the Oblivion that some people believe lies beyond this world
I'm not afraid to leave behind people on Earth
Not becuse of the Judgement Day others believe will come
No- I'm afraid to die while I'm still alive.
I'm afraid to be set adrift
Lost without a tether
whipped around in a wind created in the empty space
where loved ones (should) go.
I don't need glory
or a legacy
I just need to be bright
To be MORE than ordinary
I cannot be the bland piece of wallpaper
you never notice slowly loosing its grip on the wall
Pealing inch by inch from the solid world
leaving behind an empty space that will only be covered up and forgotten,
I would rather live in infamy than in limbo
For its much easier to fight something that is there;
Hate is curable,
Emptiness is endless.
I Refuse to be left behind
I Will be a dancing flame
Casting light into every corner of my life
The shadows will be chaced away
By the briliance I have become,
It is others who will fear
that I shall leave THEM behind.
will I abondon those that need my light
Until I am old, and spent
an ember left to guide-
Useful only to light the next fire
to give a piece of myself
to a world that will never forget me.
