Nothing is the culmination of all that is nonexistent


Why is it
That we fear
That which we know not?
What we don't
Understand
Should be something
That draws us in,
Not pushes us away.
Why is it
That we fear
The unknown?
Should it not be
That which we seek
To know?
Why fear it?
Why not embrace it?
That which we know not
Should not instill fear,
So why does it?
Why is it
That we fear
That which we know not?
Why do we fear
The unknown?


The author's comments:
It interests me how so many people fear what they don't know. Why do we do it? Why don't we seek more knowledge? THAT is what this poem is about.
