“I release you, my beautiful and terrible
fear. I release you. You were my beloved
and hated twin, but now, I don’t know you
I take myself back, fear.
You are not my shadow any longer.
I won’t take you in my hands.
You can’t live in my eye, my ears, my voice
my belly, or in my heart my heart..” -Joy Harjo, Fear Poem
