Just fear

The fear races through my mind,
aching my heart for the alarm of it,
making my emotions difficult to capture,
causing my eyes cry painfully,
and making life more miserable to lead.



           I ask,
Is there no escape ?
no doors to walk out of ?
no windows to go through ?

Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Is there a way to cease my fear ???????

Yes there is a way, you face what it is that you fear.
Sad, powerful.

Fear is a choice, not an emotion. Choose no to be afraid. Very good writing.

Only be going through it I find but that takes such courage.

I like the structure of this poem because it adds to to the words. It makes the fear palatable.

powerful expression. I remember my moments in fear but I don't remember how I exactly lost it. All I know is I want to sleep soundly so I put it aside at night and not pick it up when I wake up. Hopefully when it comes back I won't entertain it for long :)

Powerful words... but you are not alone. Listen and harness the voices and stories of people who have broken the clutches of fear, I am not one of them but someday...
