What is fear

<br />
What is this fear I visualize,<br />
Is it right to rationalize.<br />
Dare I ask, or analyse.<br />
For fear it might me mesmerise.<br />
<br />
Fear can be so devastating<br />
Fear can be so debilitating<br />
Fear can also be disabling<br />
Yet fear can be so motivating.<br />
<br />
Fear-full of energy, full of power.<br />
A chemical cosh to make you cower.<br />
Instinctive emotion can curdle and sour.<br />
And can my confidence devour.<br />
<br />
A word of anxiety and worry for me.<br />
Of phobia and irrationality.<br />
I maybe scared of some big bully.<br />
Or maybe I&rsquo;m simply scared of ME.<br />
<br />
I fear most all authority<br />
My fear might be mere monetary<br />
Some fears are elementary.<br />
And others contradictory.<br />
<br />
I wish to control my fearful emotions.<br />
To grasp hold of chaotic commotions.<br />
I haven&rsquo;t a clue, nor nary a notion<br />
To stop this madness, this loco- motion.<br />
<br />
I don&rsquo;t want my fears undercover,<br />
I don&rsquo;t want to be a pushover<br />
I want to find a way to discover.<br />
A way forward, a way to recover.<br />
<br />
To banish my fears and stay in control<br />
To regain my strength and regain my soul.<br />
To have my life more fulsome and whole.<br />
And get back a life I feel fear had stole.<br />
B. Withers 2007<br />

That was a great description. Fear can be so controlling on anyone's life. Thank you for sharing this verse. Ambies..

Hello Ambies,Thanks once again for your comments.The concept of fear was so consistently arising within the conversations I had with the people I work with that it induced a run of poems on the subject. I would share some more of these but I'm beginning to feel that I'm somehow swamping this site with my own poems and that is perhaps not what the site was intended for. Having said that I was mightly impressed with 'Alfie'! and look forward to reading more. (perhaps an 'Alfie' sequel?) Best wishes Bill
