Fear

Fear is an extreme emotion
Fear can either push you into a recluse
Or it can inspire you to conquer
What do we have to fear?
Fear of life? Or fear of death?
Fear of winning? Or fear of losing?
Fear of dying alone?
Or fear of being with others?
Fear of doing too little?
Or fear of going too far?
Fear of being seen? Fear of staying hidden?
Fear of leaving? Or fear of staying?
The only thing I fear is not having the courage to face the man in the mirror.

Today

The power of ticking clock is immense.
It makes me realize the importance of Today.
Every moving second cuts into my Today.
Every breath exhaled reduces my Today.
Today is the slipping grain of sand that I want to hold on but can’t.
Today is what happened when I was contemplating yesterday.
Today is what passed by when I fantasized of the future.
Today is something I won’t have again.
Today is just Today not yesterday not tomorrow.
Today is to be cherished.
Today is to be useful.
Today is to be lived.
For now, I want to be all I can be Today.
