FEAR

FEAR

A Poem by Arshia
"

Don't be scared of being scared...live past your fears! :)

"

One word, many forms.

Capable of inducing menacing storms!

Every living entity relates to this word

Insects, animals & even the beautiful birds!


But we humans are way ahead.

Our fear begins at birth,

& goes up to the death bed.


Surreptitiously mixed with the

lectures on righteousness,

Fear is force fed to a child.

That is for him to remain docile

Keep his thoughts from turning wild!


So childhood consists of devils & angels

To be scared of devils,

to befriend angels.


No one tells that the devils stay as we grow up

In our mind,

which won’t shut up!

These devils are our fears,

which keep on changing

as life changes its gears.


A child fears falling down a swing

A teenager is scared to follow the path of his dreams

& an adult frets over every possible thing!


Why so much fuss

Why is fear ubiquitous?

Life is to be lived

Dreams to be achieved

Let’s spice it up with a little mischief!


Fear exists only to be overcome

Shun the darkness, face the sun!

When everything will reduce to nothing one day,

Why not be brave and enjoy this brief stay! :)

You are welcome Arshia.
Words of truth and inpisration. It is all necessary to take those steps and free ourselves. They can be devils indeed and especially those misguided ones. Excellent.

Welcome...............
ONE OF THE HARDEST THING A PERSON HAS TO FACE IS A FEAR OF LOSING HIMSELF OR HERSELF TO THIS WORLD, WE ARE MADE TO BEHAVE IN A MANNER THAT'S NOT TRUE TO US. YOUR WORDS ARE TRUE TO ITS CORE, TO BE SOMETHING WE HAVE TO SHED THAT BURDEN OF FEAR FROM OUR SOULS. ITS A BEAUTIFUL WORK, THANKS FOR SHARING IT AND WRITING IT:)
