"Fear of - Not Enough Love"
love is the key to living a valuable life
one fear plaguing my mind is not sharing love enough
embracing every heart; thus eliminating strife
through good times, but moreso, when things get rough.
fear remains a strong emotion holding one captive
a prisoner entrapped in flesh and bone
sweet love erases fear for humans are reactive
to a soft touch surrounding a soul who feels alone.
i shutter to realize so many dwell in pain
from lonely thoughts of being pushed aside
my fear of not extending love and leaving them in vain
so everyone would enjoy that special glow inside.
with my fearless persona, I find a way to give
a golden opportunity to lend a helping hand
encircle those who have a need with a great will to live
and fear will be defeated through love in life so grand.
