It's fear that's the worst.

Above anything and all else,

it's fear that jeopardizes you.
Stalking the family tree

in a line of succession.

You, being that,

which is itself the very fear

that causes you to feel this way.

The fear that is nothing.

The same nothing you fear is real.

The paralyzing thought

you might lose a grip

on your reality someday

so come to an agreement with yourself

that you have to prevent that. At every cost.
