Fear

Fear.  It grips us the more we know about life.  Fear of aging, divorce, loss of a child. The one thing I don’t fear is death itself.  It holds no power over me.

I am a 43-year-old, single mom of 19-year-old boy/girl twins living in an extremely small town in rural Texas. Currently, I am employed as a Site Supervisor for a prominent corporation that provides security officers for homes and businesses.

  1. in the final analysis , no I think once I am gone, nothing more to fear. But I am still afraid of going too soon, of leaving people I love, of not having enough time to let everyone know that I cared, I loved, I saw them. Death still scares me.

    But the way you wrote it was powerful, so well done.

  2. I love the control of this. It doesn’t make sense to fear what we cannot control because, well, we can’t influence it all. Most of what we fear may or may not happen. Death is the one thing that is certain, and it’s freeing to be at peace with that.

  3. Well said, there is nothing to fear in our ultimate ending. I wrote about the fear of not living fully, of running out of time before I get everything done but like you, I do not fear Death itself.
