Fear

“It is said that before entering the sea a river trembles with fear.

She looks back at the path she has come, from the peaks of the mountains, the long winding road
going through forests and villages.

And in front of her, she sees an ocean so vast, that to enter there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.

But there is no other way.

The river can’t go back; no one can go back.

Going back is impossible in existence.

The river needs to take the risk of entering the ocean
because only then will fear disappear,
because that’s when the river will know that it’s not about disappearing into the ocean, but about becoming the ocean.”

Khalil Gibran

“We have two choices, either, live with all this, & condemn future generations to the same, or worse, if they have a future at all.” ~Bob Akavian
