Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.

silent winds
and blinding light in my path
gentle storms
while dirt roads screams in agony
internal pain is our only feeling
in each family has a broken ceiling

heart becomes only beats
and veins just get bloodier
hair is restless in the winds
and eyes fade away

skin is light and white
with hungry children with nothing to bite
imagine is our life
Spain and Rome through a painful sight

see our lives
we live in fear
as we give a sleepy stare
then moments later conscience play with our heads
and we pretend we don't care

conjoined misfits build up heavenly commotions
and the lively dead sleeps through the night
no patience for destiny to come
but nothing at all will happen
what we do after that
is our greatest test.

The author's comments:
Putting our fears in a bucket, deep in our hearts with no internal salvation is what I think our biggest problem in our current teenage generation. We all have some internal problems we never speak out loud, but a simple complement is to verbally do because of technology, such as texting, and computer instant messaging. once we become grown adults. anything you do big or small is fearful, Marriage, jobs, meeting people you will be forced to talk verbally, and when that day comes for you to make a difference, that is the test. will you arise or break down to this lifes' test?
