Might Over Fright

What if doing that I died?

Its better I avoid.

What if I get scars?

Its better I stay far.

Such thoughts and beliefs,

Make us filled with anxiety and grief

Fear stops us from moving forward,

We live a life of a coward.

To do anything it forbids,

We become an imprisoned timid

Negative beliefs into positive beliefs one should transform,

We can easily then face our storms.

Attempts should be made to change our negative thoughts,

Automatically,we would be free from feelings of fear and distraught.

Things wouldn't appear scary and red,

Thus,nothing would stop us from moving ahead.

Only once,we need to confront fear,

Because after that it disappears.

And becomes a known face,

So discomfort gets replaced by solace.

Example and story,

Of facing fears and attaining victory,

Can change our beliefs and to face our fears we get encouraged.

We get freedom from our created cage.

We reach the pinnacle,

As we have defeated our biggest obstacle.

Facing one's fears is great advice.

Nice one.

Shalini -

Honest poem - Fear can overwhelm your poem reminds the need to face it with confidence. Not facing fear can limit and stagnate. Where it has its place, as you say, confront to diminish its hold.

Fear is the real enemy of our life.

A powerful poem Shalini highlighting the need to face our fears and defeat them. Each time we look fear in the face it gets easier, otherwise it will control every aspect of our lives. I think we are in the middle of our biggest fear at the moment and one we all have to face together. Keep safe and well.
