Fear by Khalil Gibran

 

It is said that before entering the sea 
a river trembles with fear. 

She looks back at the path she has traveled, 
from the peaks of the mountains, 
the long winding road crossing forests and villages. 

And in front of her, 
she sees an ocean so vast, 
that to enter 
there seems nothing more than to disappear forever. 

But there is no other way. 
The river can not go back. 

Nobody can go back. 
To go back is impossible in existence. 

The river needs to take the risk 
of entering the ocean 
because only then will fear disappear, 
because that’s where the river will know 
it’s not about disappearing into the ocean, 
but of becoming the ocea
