A haiku written by Lee Sonogan
“I thought that if I owned nothing, had nothing, was nothing, I would have nothing left to lose, and I wouldn’t be scared anymore. Because my whole life I’ve been so damn scared. Scared to live because I was scared to die. But at the same I was so scared of living, so I wanted to die. Or maybe so scared of dying that I refused to live. You don’t have to be afraid to fall, when you’re already on the ground. You don’t have to be scared to lose someone, when there’s no one around to lose.” ― Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles: in search for The Great Perhaps
Of one’s own shadow,
Strikes fear into one’s RAM heart,
Ere wen Jericho!
“Don’t be afraid of being scared. To be afraid is a sign of common sense. Only complete idiots are not afraid of anything.” ― Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Angel’s Game
