You could be Rima the birdgirl
except for your fear of height.
Quetzalcoatl perhaps or the peaceable dove,
except for your fear of flight.
Victor beyond doubt and still have eyes, ears, teeth, and snout,
except for your fear of out.
A place in heaven, diet food, and a golden cup,
except for your fear of up.
If you could choose your method, the means would find the way,
except, of course, for your fear of day.
Death is always open; it might well be well,
except for your fear of hell.
The list is endless, but the end is near:
you might consider your fear of fear.
