Fear dwells within us all—
It doesn't always have a face or a demanding manifestation . . . Perhaps you don't even know it yourself—but it resides within us, like a shadow to our bones. A whisper in the darkest of nights or silence in the brightest of daylight;
It is a beautifully unpleasant thing—truly.
We will face these things in the last moments we breathe, for death is an unkind man.
—for he is me, as I am him.
