480 – Afraid

Aren’t you afraid?
Your armor is gone.
How will you face the world
So fragile and naked?

Aren’t you afraid?
Your cloak lost its magic.
How will you stay hidden
Away from the light?

Aren’t you afraid?
Your sword has been broken.
How will you survive
Totally unarmed?

Armor, cloak, and sword,
They no longer matter.
I have tasted freedom,
The seeds of wild madness.

Aren’t you afraid?
You have lost it all.

I didn’t lose anything,
I chose to let go.
Am I not afraid?
No, not anymore.
