That.

Scared as we are
Not of others
But of ourselves,

There is nothing
Quite as scary
As the human condition;

A journey inwards
Surpasses a thousand
Outside of us,

It is an irony:
Our inner self-defence
Act against what is within.

Ourselves

We all try
In our films and music
To capture and express
The human condition and emotions

Cos’ we don’t know them
We seek to unravel them
To reflect them in our works
To showcase them to ourselves

Though more importantly
It is simply because
We are afraid of them
As how we are afraid of ourselves

What we don’t know
Scares us
Particularly
That which is known to us

As ourselves.
