Trapped in Between

More than dying
I was afraid of living.
Afraid of being something
afraid of not being something
afraid of loving
afraid of being loved
afraid of hurting
afraid of breaking
afraid of accepting
afraid of rejecting
afraid of falling
afraid of flying
afraid of being
afraid of not being
afraid of forgetting
afraid of remembering
afraid of giving
afraid of receiving
and only
when I let my fears consume me
did I understand
that I was afraid
in all senses
of being human.
