Fear of heights

Why be so afraid to grow?
Higher, higher.

They might take me down.
I might come crashing down.

Down?
Down you say.

Might you be down now?

Then you know what down is.
You know what down does.
You know the love of down.

Ah, you want to go downer.
Quite natural, I say.

How many of you are deep sea divers,
how many of you are deep soul divers?

You want to dive deeper,
you want to dive downer.

In the depths your rage and my rage are indistinguishable,
your fear and my fear made of the same stuff.
Your love and my love, in love, in love.

Now that you know this, ascend, ok?

Heights are only scary because the depths are (still) calling to you.
