My biggest fear in life
I’ve had periods in my life when I’ve barely slept.
For days. For months.
I was scared to turn off.
I was addicted to thinking.
I was trying to work something out.
For the sake of it.
I would try to park ideas in a book but they kept calling me.
A late-night talk show could hum me to sleep.
The scent of a new day, ushered in by a fresh sun, could soothe me.
Because I knew it would all start again.
Those ideas kept calling me.
My ego refused to be silent.
I understand it now.
My biggest fear in life…
or, rather, my ego’s biggest fear in life
is not making a difference.
Life’s too short to not matter.
I know you can relate.
Especially if you end up reading this after midnight.
What’s your biggest fear?
