I no longer fear death. I fear not living.
I no longer fear death
I fear not making the most of every day
I fear not giving back

I fear not laughing my butt off
dancing my heart out
singing my soul on

I fear not hugging my loved ones 
And holding on for dear life

I fear not telling people in my life how much they mean to me 
I fear missing an opportunity to say
I love you

I fear not being the loudest and proudest supporter 
for someone when they’re flying 
oh so high 
and being the most empathetic and softest shoulder to cry on 
when they fall back down to earth 

I fear going a day without making one person’s day better

It’s hard living a meaningful life 
But it’s harder living a meaningless one 

I no longer fear death
I fear not living
I see now
life happens when you’re making plans

This poem was written by cancer survivor Anthony Morales. It is a powerful expression of a life no longer driven by fear. We encourage you to take any part of the poem and create a visual, audio, or video piece that reflects on this poem. Unfortunately, no sculptures are allowed in this art call.
