All about fear

Fear hampers success and innovation, Many health problems, fear a causation With fear our happiness we restrain Out of fear we endure persisting pain. All have some fear or another They give agony one after other I had fear of dark It was very stark Feared ghost will accost me From dark places, I would flee One day, I decided to end it Walked in dark with grit I trembled with fear Felt ghost was near More I thought, more fear grew It was my imagination I knew Asked myself what will it do? What harm can happen to you? I will continue my walk Let the ghost stalk It is not human, cannot harm me Why fear when God is with thee? Nothing happened that night That incident ended my fright When by fear to you are hit Take a close look at it Many times, solutions you'll find If you can't, change your mind Most fears are mere imagination, baseless, Probability of others coming true is very less. We often fear the unknown, Such fears are best overthrown. Fears arise from worldly attachments End when we practice detachment Why fear for the transient, the dying Why not think of the soul, God, the undying A firm faith in God, belief he'll not do bad Keeps fear away, we are never sad We are not this body which is mortal We are the soul, we are immortal Our soul part of God, exists within him Chances of self harm, indeed very dim Little fear is essential in life It helps to prevent strife But fear given for self-protection Is often blown out of proportion Face your fear, don't drown in them Maintain calm when they come If we boldly face our fear, they might just disappear. 27.08.2021

Most fears are mere imagination, baseless, Probability of others coming true is very less. It's true. Beautifully portrayed. Congratulations!

I have a fear of the dark that started in childhood when someone frightened me, and it has lasted till now, it’s difficult to overcome. Good advice in your poem Rama, if I can face my fear maybe it will disappear… Belle
