fear is powerful fear

fear is powerful 

fear is a driving force in our lives

it can bring us together

it can divide us 

it is our one great motivator 

fear tells us what we can do 

fear tells us what we can't do 

i used to fear the future 

i used to fear the "what ifs" 

now however 

i see that fear 

is the future 

the fear of the unknown is thrilling 

it is exhilarating 

it pushes us to places we want to go

it pushes us to places we don't want to go

but fear pushes us

the future is bright 

the fear of it helps us 

it tells us what we want 

it helps us see what we aspire to be

the fear of the future remains in me

but because i want it to.
