A poem about fear. There are many ways to deal with fear. There are many lessons to learn from fear. How you deal with fear shows a great deal about who you are.

Fear

In the darkness of night, our biggest fears come to light.
Will you run from them in fright or will face your fears and fight?
Fears are many among all humanity it is how you deal with these fears
That show just what type of person you are.
There is nothing wrong with having fears.
After all, we all fear something or someone.
It is the way you deal with the fears that come into play.
Do you run away from your fears so you will live another day?

There are many lessons to be learned from fear,
The lessons that strengthen who you are.
It is not easy to face your fears.

But, running away from them only prolongs the time it takes for you to learn the lesson you must from all of your fears.

My dears many tears fall from every cheek throughout a lifetime.
Do not let your tears fall because you were to weak to face the unknown!
After all every dream has a little bit of fear in it.
Be strong turn around look fear in the face and be who you are.
Whatever the outcome at least you know, you were strong enough to face your fears.
Walk tall because in life we all must fall but it is how we get back up that prove just how strong we are.

Brendamarie, I love this poem. I hope that everyone reads it because there is truly a lesson to be learned here. The world we live in can be a dangerous place but then again our lives are what we make of them and if we try I do believe we will succeed. Smiles to you today and always.

Fear is a block that is put by demons showing that they are out to create pain.
But that said Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and its no pagan worship.

Did you ever fear your son dying Brenda?
I know as a father I would have the worst nightmare of your kid being in trouble.

I do remember motivational speaker Robert Kiyosaki who is a Vietnam War veteran saying that fear is an acronym meaning False Evidence Appearances Real.

I suspect you are talking about personal fears, but I might point out that the political party that rules in America rules by generating fear in Americans.

Yes, it's not easy to face fears when they are generated by people in power to control us with their fear-mongering. I didn't want to inject politics into your insightful poem, but fears aren't always self-generated.

Nicely done!
If we do not know fear, we cannot really be courageous.

There is such a thing as a healthy fear and we should all take precautions. Overall however, most people are too fearful and it often stems from our early teachings. Blessings.

Amazing work. I only have a few fears. Facing them one by one has made me stronger and wiser. The rest I simply avoid.

I fear I will not have strength to face the reality as I grow older especially with regard to health and becoming dependent for basic needs - siva
