Love the Fear

FEAR
I will not give you the force and power of my soul
though your images should haunt me
and your relentless appetite should daunt me
you cannot possess me
I am whole.

Drive me into the depths of my own
dark pain and you will see
that in the darkest hour
I can only find more me.

More light
more hope
more joy
more peace
more to cope
with the reality of light
and the illusion you present
what do you represent
my dear
fear?

Just a lack of love
no more.

I give you that
I open up the door
and invite you in
dear fear,
and then
you are
no more.
