Afraid

We are born
into an
unknown
world.
Slowly
we learn
as we go.
Taught by
those who
came before.
Who in turn
we’re taught
by those who
came before.
Generation after
generation
passing
knowledge
forward.

Knowledge
differed
region
by region.
Belief systems
differed
region by
region.

The common
link
in all this?
The
knowledge
passed
had its
roots
in beliefs of
ancient people,
people who
we’re
gripped
by fear.
Fear of
the world they
were born into.
Fear of the
unknown
Fear of death.

Today we still
fear the
unknown.
We still fear
death.

Until we
conquer
our fears,
we can not
move forward.
If we can not
move forward,
we’ll be
devoured
by our
future.
