|Raw Potential (CAI 2023)|
What do you fear?
That's clear. I am afraid
that opening myself to what's in me
will break my heart with impossibility
rendering life an intolerable
the resulting explosion maiming all those around me
leaving them broken; leaving me
with nothing at all.
It's not small, this fear
It's not nothing and it doesn't lie
I know all too well how truly committing to I
explodes the world.
