I heard Fear speak to me; His frigid breath shook my very being.
“I will destroy you…and all that you love”
He sneered, with an evil gleam of eye.
I trembled inside; my heart turned to ice.
I wept; I pleaded; I begged to be spared.
He heard…and he laughed with bitter contempt.
But, then I said…and I don’t know why…
“I will love you… I will love you…”
And then he heard me cry.
Then He spoke to me …once again.
“I have come to bring you freedom…
For now you can see who I really am:
I am you, unrecognized…and hitherto unloved.
I have come to bring you Power; for I am your unclaimed self
Seen in the dark mirror of your child’s mind.
