Being There

155

Being There…

Opposed to here

Being somewhere that is always near

Beside you throughout the days

Bright sunshine and bitter haze

Being There…

Inside the dark

Lonely days without much talk

No smiles or laughter, hugs or dances

No forgiveness or second chances

Being There…

In the retro dead

Regret is something never said

How can fear distort the truth?

Remove the time from the youth

Being There…

Filled with blame

Towards the one without a name

Great insults bloom like roses Summer sultry life decomposes

Over the last year, I have discovered that there are many people that do push their fears onto others. I think this is a common occurrence. I have become more aware when it is happening around me. I have become aware of where my fear really resides from and try to allow others to be in their space of fear without taking on their fears. This is so difficult sometimes. I think while people are in fear, the one thing they do not want, is to be there alone. Being there is about facing your fears and not letting them consume you.
