Fear


Fear
Fear of conflict, fear of change
Fear that our lives
Will always stay the same

Fear of sickness
Fear of the dark
Fear in the heart
That we lost that spark

Fear of the unknown
Fear of something new
Fear is alive and well
Fear lives inside of you

Fear of being alone
Fear of suffering pain
Fear of not knowing
How to play lifes game

Fear of the future
For what it may hold
The fear inside some people
Knowing they will grow old

Fear of helplessness
When things are going wrong
Fear because you know
You're not really that strong

The fear of never knowing
The fear of facing death
The fear of not knowing when
You'll take your final breath

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
