Fear


When I was little,
I thought that I knew what fear was.
I thought fear was me being afraid to be alone.
I thought it meant feeling insecure in my surroundings,
And I thought, it was my dislike for darkness.

Now I understand.
Fear; it isn't because of
Darkness, nor
Loneliness, nor
Insecurity.

One has nothing to fear.
Fright is just an emotional sentiment.
The only thing to fear, however,
Is fear, itself.

    An amazing poem this is! It's great to know you have identified what fear is and have overcome your childhood notion about fear.
    'One has nothing to fear.
    Fright is just an emotional sentiment.
    The only thing to fear, however,
    Is fear, itself.'
    These lines are quotable quotes. Fear comes from negative thoughts. We must be aware of negativity in life. (Report) Reply
