Fear
By: Brian Katanov
What is fear
But a chemical reaction
Released glutamate,
A neurological transaction
What is fear
But the epitome of emotion
Finding home in the mind
Pushing dreams into motion
What is fear
But one’s greatest nightmare
Cold sweat
An innate despair
What is fear
But life’s greatest pleasure
A fast-closing door
To a joy without measure
To those who seek
Respite from fear
Please ponder this
What is fear to you?
