Jensen Hood Poems
Fear is not what I am afraid of. True, it is a frightful thing to fear; But the fear of fearing fear is overwhelming Especially when its form becomes sheer
I Can Never Go Back
I crawl through a thorny trail, Dragging my body along with only my soul, Both have given up all hope, Grief has taken toll.
I look up in the sky and all I see is you Its not to bright, Its not to dark, its perfect And its all ours...
I'M Always Alone
When morning wears crown, with white light of early dawn When the sun goes down, and day removes its gown
Into this world with a curse upon my name For wherever I walk I coward in fear People turning their heads to judge Different people different faces
Never Moving On
inside I'm crying outside I'm smiling no one notices but its hard for me to control these feelings
Comments about Jensen Hood
Fear is not what I am afraid of.
True, it is a frightful thing to fear;
But the fear of fearing fear is overwhelming
Especially when its form becomes sheer
Fear is like losing a tree of shade on a bristling day
Or losing your breath when you fall below the sea;
I fear this fear of fearing these fears
And it is this fear that is part and parcel of me.
Fear is like loving without being loved back,
Fear is like leaving without being left;
And the fear of loving and leaving and being loved and being left
Is opposed by the fear of not fearing anything ...
