There are some things we must do for ourselves,
Like working with our heart,
Yes keep it open.
“There is only what you want and what happens. There is only grabbing on and holding tight in the darkness.”― Lauren Oliver
“I think part of the reason why we hold so tight is because we fear something so great won’t happen twice.”― Faraaz Kazi
When fear summons its head,
Don't deny, let's cling
Don't avoid, let's hold
Don't reject, let's grab
“Don’t hold on to dear life – hold life dearly.”― Rasheed Ogunlaru
When it shows itself,
“We hold on to poetry because it lights a fire in our soul and keeps our bodies warm.”― Sanober Khan
But don't follow it.
“I hold you in the safest place I keep. Somewhere between memories and scars.”― Nicole Lyons
Smile at it,
“It’s the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance.”― Xiaolu Guo
We are aware of fear,
Let it go,
Send it on its way.
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”― Friedrich Nietzsche
