AFRAID OF NOTHING

AFRAID OF NOTHING

There is always nothing
To be afraid of – yet
Some are afraid of it
To be sure, to be sure

HATRED’S ROOT

Fear is our greatest foe

TRUCE

Death does not frighten me

Wary of recklessness

Unsure of uncertainty
One will not travel far

That is the one thing
One may be sure of
