The Fight Against Fear

The Fight Against Fear

A Poem by RachelReaper
"

I personified "Fear" to be as a person of sorts, and used a battle theme. Hope you like :)

"

The Fight Against Fear

Plunge the sword

Fire the arrow

Stab the dagger

Throw the knife

Launch the spear

Straight into

The heart of Fear

 

Let yourself be heard

Raise your voice

Share your words and ideas

Make your dream

Grow louder and louder

Until it turns

Into a battle cry

You're in this war

The same as I

So create the winning side

 

Do not falter

Or be scared

Nor hesitant or ashamed

Be who you are

And live it out

Lead your army on

To be courageous and strong

And nothing

Can lead you astray

 

Be more afraid

You will go through life

Without doing anything

Worth a damn

Than dying young

 

It's better to live

One moment of

Noble bravery

Than a lifetime

Being cowardly

And forever

Live together

Die alone

 

Know your friends

Charging with you

On this great battlefield

But face your opponent

One-on-One

Bring justice

To the things

Fear has done

Watch as he falls

To his knees

And you have earned

Another victory

 

Celebrate this win

By marching your parade

To be against conformity

And the plagues

Of today's society

And be indifferent

To their safe formality

You are raw

You are real

And you are you

As I am me

 

So what will

Fear do when

You say

"I'll never surrender."

What will he do

When you say,

"I've beaten you

And you'll never

Be my controller."

 

This war will not

End today

Or tomorrow

Or the day after that

This is an ongoing fight

And we must all

Beat Fear

Every day of our lives

I think this is a good piece. It is very well put together and I can tell you spent a lot of effort on this aside from being naturally talented. I love how you relate to fear as something you must battle and conquer as if in a battle. Aside from that, Its very inspirational and moving.

i would like to see this condensed somewhat, but then i am of the school of "
less is more"

and often i think we overstate ....but at the same time...i really like this theme...

i feel we need to live each day like it is our last...what are we saving ourselves for?

go out and do it, go out and get it...

be a mover and shaker...otherwise when that time comes, especially if it is too early on...we will regret not having lived.

failure, pain, all part of the deal...like that one song said.."you bleed just to know you're alive"---

I like the format, it's really good. I like how the poem is flowing also, it makes it easier to read. Good job!

Very good imagery. Other than your obvious skills in poetry, I also enjoyed the format it was written in. Somehow it added to the whole feel of the poem. Good job with that. I could almost hear this as a song. Thanks for sharing, you definitely have a talent ^^

Some see this as an exernal reference to fear while I prefer to believe it deals with the darker side of us that we struggle against lest it consume us. I am inclined to think you share that concept. I would like to see a bit more regimen in structure but the pattern prevailed and the theme was delivered. Good job.

This poem is really good. I like your use of vocabulary and how you formatted the poem. It was inspiring and emotional all at once. You definitely captured the idea of the fight against fear.
