Yes fear me
fear me like every challenge that has ever come for me
fear me
fear me when you look upon my appearance and cannot comprehend
An approach
Fear me
With so much curiosity you take a seat and consider how to broach
A hello
Fear me
So much
That you cannot Envision standing by my side if you only walk with pride
the egotistical type
Fear me
So much that you accept you cannot manipulate my mind
fear me
fear me with all the knowledge that I keep swords under my tongue
Fear me
With total Wonder at how I’ve overcome
Fear me
And ask if you’re ready to be told of the obstacle roads I traveled to Become
This Person
Fear me
With total respect for all that I stand for
Yes
I suggest
You fear me
Because you’ll come back for more
Fear me
As you would a teacher or a disciplinary
Fear me
When you’re hungry
I’m a good love culinary
Fear me like pepper spray fears a cup of dairy
Fear me as you would the Cure
if you love to be unhealed
Fear me like you fear yourself before you take a view of you in solitude
Fear me
I suggest you fear me
If you’re just up to no good
Fear me if you do not intend to grow
Fear me if you like to take it slow
In other words
Live at a pause
Stuck
Fear me
Like heights
No matter how Brave you are in elevators
I promise
I pull black holes to me like an escapader
They can’t even hold me
They ask to leave
Do not like the unravelling
I make them receive
Fear me
For I fear not my intensity.
