I wonder what it feels like
to not think you're constantly dying; 1 million tiny deaths a day.

I wonder what it feels like
to not fear your bodily sensations--
like each feeling is an intruder.

I wonder what it feels like
to not be afraid of your own heartbeat, 
(and if it might explode).

I wonder what it feels like
-to free the mind
-to unlock the gate
-to release the animal.

Do you wonder what it feels like
when you're afraid of yourself?
