Strong, sudden but extraordinarily common,
fear thrives in us all.
Created by many things regardless
of what form it takes; simple or complex.
It drives our primeval consciousness of
wanting to live and survive in a world
in constant motion and turmoil.
It feeds the many dilemmas that human
life creates generating fragile souls
lost in a long lost world of peace
and harmony.
Fear beholds many strengths, each one
perfectly formed to produce the most
unforgettable nightmares of one’s life.
Nightmares become one with everyday life
giving rise to differing personalities.
Destructive as it may be fear is a well
deserved gift giving each one of us the 
ability to install courage because 
without fear courage cannot exist.

    Fear can be fuel if the wielder of said fear can harness it to their benefit and break free. I hope that made sense. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed this read.
