Choice of Fear

I wrote this one day when I felt randomly afraid of something, and I couldn't figure out what it was.

Does it make sense
To be afraid
Of what you know not?

Afraid of snakes,
or spiders,
Or just getting caught?

Fear is something strange,
A trick of the mind.

In our precariousness,
Should we accept it,
Or leave it behind?

Betray your courage.

Betray your truth.

It all comes to this;
We can't understand fear,
So what do we chose?
Courage or truth?

Betrayal is a sin.
Life is not meant for sins,
So hide from fear,
And live with shame.
