Are you afraid of the great unknown?
Does death frighten you?
The questions asked unto me
I simply smile at the thought quizzically
How can one be afraid of the unavoidable?
The thought of falling to sleep
Never waking up as the abyss overcomes
I have seen far worse in my life than the reaper
Fear is such a bizarre sentiment
Respect, loathing all together
Seeing another suffer whom I love
A child without food or clothes
The bondage of helplessness
Is what I truly fear and despise
Wanting to do anything but in the end cannot
Respecting it because it is a part of life
Losing a piece of my heart in you
Watching the dreamless sleep overtake
The very thing I want to protect
I fear that more than my own death.
