fire of fear
this fire is not the fire of love – it is the fire of fear
of choices not made
of words unspoken
of love not given
of songs not sung
of stories not told
we try to put out the fire or drown it – anything to distract from the pain of that deep burning within.
exercise too much
take up a habit – again: smoking, drinking…
take on more work/projects
all the while fanning the flame of fear burning within.
consequences of these choices –
from those whom we love
from what we feel
from the best of ourselves
from our creativity
from our ability to see clearly with the eyes of our heart,
our real life.
the manifestation of the fear of living fully the gift of a life, takes many forms.
self-sabotage – in so many ways.
