Fear, you see,
Is an occupational hazard of being human.
It’s part of our deal with life.
Inescapable, though not insurmountable.
Beyond the inherent fears that ensure our basic survival
There are fears that create structures in our hearts
As real as brick and mortar.
So in the construction sites of our dreams
Its best to come prepared for the feeling of inadequacy,
The insecurities lying around haphazardly
And the overhanging concern that it all just might fall apart.
Don’t be caught off guard when the fears come.
Bring a helmet.
