Fear is a strong feeling for me, an emotion I despise
It is sometimes debilitating to me at times, I have surmised
Spiders, heights, creepy crawly bugs, diseases I may get
I am fearful of failure, not giving my all, having regrets
I fear being alone, dying alone, wasting away in a nursing home
I fear the afterlife and ponder if I will go to another realm to roam
