Fear of…

For the fear of death,
I once loved life.
For the fear of life,
Now I love death.

For the fear of truth,
We love lies…..
For the fear of success
We love failure…
For the fear of failure,
We love success.

For the fear of self,
We seek company,
For the fear of others,
We seek to be aloof.

Whenever this fear is gone,
We will be relieved forever.
