Looking down the barrel of a gun is easier than you think,
As is knowing the link between deadly diseases and my smoking.
Still, let shot be fired and breathing difficulties come;
They're the least of my concerns, despite the reputation of guns
And chemotherapy, which kills more people than it saves;
Don't even get me started on what modern medicine says,
Or gangs and their threats, because I don't find them the least bit frightening;
In addition, I'd drench myself in water and galivant through gigantic lightning
Storms, for I know of that which is the pinnacle of fear:
Living life without you or never getting my freedom back, my dear.
Love is the most paradoxical thing we know.
