I take fright
for the world is hollow
and I have touched the sky 
I take fright 
because there is life 
and life seems doomed
to eternally ask, why?
I take fright
at my innocent blindness
that I do not know
what hides in plain sight
above everything on earth
seen only in the night
I take fright
in the terror of space
and it’s beautiful secrets
I take fright
for not knowing
and remaining unknown
I take fright
and with it
I can, cast aside my ignorance
I can, give myself a chance to know
