What is it that frightens you so?

The color of his skin?
The ambition of her spirit?
The depth of their soul?

A reality you can never understand?
A truth you will never live?
A love you cannot fathom?

Why take what is not yours?
Why deny others the possibility of being fully alive?
Why destroy the opportunity to thrive?

Or is it you?
Is it you that you are running from?
Is it you that ultimately frightens you most?
