Fear does not prevent death. It prevents life.
Somehow I know life would begin one day
At the end of my comfort zone where the way
Familiar to me would abruptly end
And I would no longer be able to pretend
That the status quo satisfactory has been
I would have to jump into the abyss unseen…
It seems while waiting for that moment
I hide behind fear, the emotion predominant
Fear seems to have such a vice grip on me
It makes me concoct stories extraordinary
To convince myself that any deviation from the norm would turn out
To be a disaster without any doubt…
Maybe one of these days a leap of faith I shall take
Only time would tell me if I made a mistake
But at least I would then have scored a victory
Against fear, my greatest adversary..
One thought on “Fear…”
So true. Fear is the great paralyzer.
