Should I confront and allow myself

To be consumed by one of my worst fears?

Should I become one with my shadow?

Should I tear down my armor and reveal

The weakness and insecurities; the truth?

Instead of running, should I turn back and

Somehow find peace in solitude?

Should I curl up in a corner,

Depending solely on the walls for support?

Should I turn my back on others?-

Leave them before they have a chance to leave me?

Should I invert into myself and turn away from others so

They can't cause me more pain?

Should I live on looking down

And give in to my loneliness?
