Life Long Friends
Sometimes, I look over my shoulder and see two of my life long friends, Fear and Insecurity.
“Lean on us” urges Fear. “It will be like old times.”
“ We will always be there when you need us...” purrs Insecurity
It is so tempting to turn to them. They were there for me when I was at the lowest time in my life. Fear helped me to stay rooted in a cruddy tenement apartment in the ‘hood of St. Paul, MN. Meanwhile, Insecurity convinced me that I wasn’t smart enough to pursue my dream of becoming an attorney.
I opened the door to my heart to let them in, but contentment had already staked its claim there.

Seriously, I thought it was great. "Fear,Insecurity",,,very powerful and close to home. You just lost me when you mentioned your address.
