Creative fun in

Fear drives the world into the abyss, courage lifts it out.
Fear drives the world.
Fear of doing, fear of not doing.
Fearful to live, fearful to die.

Fear believes in not enough, fear believes in too much.
Fear feeds the flame of going too far.
And feeds off the need of not going far enough.

Fear cannot look into its own eyes.
It cannot see itself in the mirror.
Fear is blind to itself.

Fear serves the furrowed brow.
Serves the drive that is anger.
Serves the anger that is fear.

Fear drives the need to love.
And drives the need for power.
It needs hatred.

Fear prowls the street looking for followers.
It derives its courage from others.
It derives its strength from the many.

It draws in the hopeless.
Draws in the directionless.
Fear attracts itself.

Fear is enraged by courage.
Causing it to lose power.
It has no power in the face of strength.

Courage builds from the strength of light.
The strength of hope.
The strength of resolve.

Courage and Fear merge.
Fear and Courage derive strength from one another.
Courage and Fear are, man.
