My Biggest Fear
Is it lame that my biggest fear is death? People here are prolific and poetic talking of how they despise oblivion. They use metaphors to explore their fear of truly living or their fear of forgetting.
In Kindergarten, you point to picture cards to describe your fear of spiders, heights, the darkness.
And of course, I'm afraid of those, too.
But it all comes down to hyperventialitng in bed at two am, knowing that if I let mysef fall into my tiredness I will never wake up. And the world is still stretched before me. I'm not ready yet to say goodbye.
