Fearful Understandings

What is fear?
A state of mind or is it more?
Fear is anything yet nothing
Creepy crawlies, heights, and falling
All a part of the darkness
Yet we don't fear the light
We can see quite clearly what is coming
What are we really seeing then?
We can't see or don't know
Around the corner they hide
All of our fears
Yet around the corner could be peace
We don't try because we are afraid
We don't take that chance
We don't understand the dark
The light is peace
It could end us too
So, what are we really fearing?
