It’s all very well to tell people not to be afraid, but how?
You can’t just step on fright’s oxygen pipe and hope it goes away
There is nothing irrational about fear and panic
I look into the future;
a future of void and insecurity and I am afraid
No one has the singular right to tell me not to be frightened
Especially when I am doing all I can and nothing seems to be working
Even if I try not to panic, it doesn’t always go away,
Particularly when my dream remains notoriously unshaken
Some concepts are just notorious to achieve.
