You are afraid

You are afraid of the sound of my voice

of the meaning and the depth behind my words

of the nakedness and the brightness of my truths

You are afraid of how I stir and awaken your soul

 

You are afraid of your own self

of being forced to confront your ego and your shadows to your inner truths

of putting down this wall you’ve built around your heart

and laying off this harsh mask of yours exposing your tender face to the world

 

And so you further raise this protective wall of yours

You shut off the mere mention of my name from your inner ears

Using sarcasm, irony and narrow-minded rationality to mock and discredit me

Thus preventing your soul from being lured by this chant of freedom
