We all want to be

scared of nothing.

But, it is “nothing”

that scares the shit out of us.

~

We fill our lives with things

and sights and sounds

and thoughts we don’t even need,

just so we can run away from nothing.

~

We all want to be deprived

of nothing,

when the only thing we truly own

in this life, is it’s nothingness.

~

So, instead of subtracting

from what we have,

we add layers until we no longer

remember who we are

~

We fear most, ending up

being nothing,

when that in fact, is the most difficult thing

to be, and perhaps the most satisfying too.

~

So, instead of loosing ourselves

and blending with the fabric of the Universe,

we label and get labelled,

stand out, perish and die.

~

Sitting alone on the bed at night,

its not the ghosts or demons that scare us

most, but our own thoughts,

and us.

~

What does that tell us

about ourselves ?

nothing much,

I guess.
