Fear is a constant force in Life
A Force that holds no prisoners,
Regardless of colour, creed, or race, it doesn’t discriminate.
It lives in each of us at every moment,
Moments where we vulnerably decide to give it life.
Fear has brought the most famous of legends into the realm,
While also illustrating who are the mere mortals.
It is an enemy to some, consuming their mind,
While an instigator to others to conquer onto greater feats!
Fear has taken each of us on interesting journeys,
Sometimes bringing to the fore unresolved issues,
Sometimes reminding us that which comforts us.
Fear is something we all recognise
When we look into the mirror.
It reveals to us who we are at our very best when tested,
And also reminds us of the worst we could represent.
Our greatest step is to recognise that Fear,
Acknowledging it for the temporary force it can be,
Yet carrying on our life journey,
Letting it be a passive passenger.
So as a new day arises, let us think…
Do we let Fear overcome us?
Or do we proceed with the courage,
Knowing Fear is that timely reminder,
Of what we can be at our very best!
