Fear running alongside

I look back and see
Fear running alongside me,
Hot breath on my neck.

I attempt to flee.
But what happens if I stop,
I no longer run?

  1. I, too, have had that happen. The pursuit is relentless! The breath is so hot and aspect so dark!
    I’ve noticed it’s the same with my shadow – we’re never apart.
    The only saving grace from my shadow: when I slow down, it slows down.
    Sadly, my shadow gets stronger in the daylight. With my fears, a little light and love seem to dissolve them. Isn’t that curious?


    • Hmmm. I’m curious what your shadow represents for you since you differentiate it from your fears. I tend to think of one’s shadow as all of the potentially negative items that dog one.
