The Source Of Faith & Wisdom

I was afraid of desire

I was afraid of losing everything

I was afraid of having power 

I was afraid of authority

I was afraid of being alone 

I was afraid of losing myself in relationship

I was afraid of money—having and not having

I was afraid of sex

I was afraid of my shadow

I was afraid of light 

I was afraid that I didn’t have what it takes

I was afraid I was selfish

I was afraid I was too much

I was afraid I was not enough

I was afraid of not being understood

I was afraid of what people would say 

I was afraid of divine law

I was afraid of getting sick

I was afraid of being betrayed

I was afraid of drinking too much

I was afraid of being a madwoman 

I was afraid I would lose the love of my life

I was afraid that I’d never think my art was good enough

I was afraid of getting older

I was afraid of saying what I thought to people in high places

I was afraid that I would never get “it”

I was afraid I’d never feel beautiful

I was afraid of gaining weight

I was afraid I’d be in a position where I’d have to ask for help 

I was afraid of the state of the world

 

Went through, not around, all of the above

They each became the source of look it in the eye faith and wisdom

So that I can now not fear even fear 

In me or anyone else 

At the end of the line is joy

The Age of Eros is a manifesto, a guide, to the coming of an era. This is a woman’s way.
