Fear: A Word Crueler Than Any Other
It’s a word just like any other,
Yet it’s different in many ways.
It’s a word that holds us back;
It’s a word that has changed lives.
For good or bad, that just depends.
Some choose to run from fear,
Others choose to rise and conquer.
Ultimately the choice is ours,
But each time we make it,
Our destiny takes a different course.
Fear is like death;
You cannot ignore it forever.
For all we know,
It will catch up to you.
Believe me when I say this,
I’ve been lost in fear for far too long.
It’s time to step up and defeat,
Or we'll be the ones
With a destiny
Going somewhere we never wished.
Now I leave the choice to you.
Look fear in the eye,
And take a chance to try;
At least you’ll have a path
That leads you where you desire.
