FEAR

In securing your house against thieves,
you turn your home into a prison
and while thieves roam freely abroad

that darkness and light follow each other
and without either there can be no day.

What is it from which protection must be sought,
and who or what is it that must be protected?

While cats chase their tails endlessly
and jakals howl hollowly at the moon
Those who are called
must awaken and be on their way.

    If this is the case, then assisting those with powerful mental imagery for imagine the future is a challenge.
