Avoiding Our Void with Fear
By Don Iannone
What is it that we fear
when we are afraid?
Observe your fear.
My fear is just more mind dust
trying to fill the unfillable void
emptying me into the endless river
beginning and ending nowhere.
Why do we work so hard
to fill the void inside us?
The void stands alone.
It is the only part of us that does.
All else requires something more...
something other that comes before or after.
The void needs nothing; not even you.
Once again, what is it you fear
when you are afraid?
