There are things we try so hard to see from afar. These shapes. A mirage. We make meaning where there simply is none. We create monsters to befall us. We fear this unknown. We watch for its movement. A twitch and we are doomed. But if we get closer. A little closer. Closer still. Maybe we'll see that that which has kept us distant wasn't what we perceived, but rather ourselves. A projection of our own device. Maybe in the end fear has less to do with what is outside of us, but what is within.
