Fear

Fear,
To some,
A chance to
Show character,
While to others, a
Huge adrenaline rush;
Heart pounding, muscles tensing,
To confront the danger head-on.
Opportunity or enemy?
Not truly known ‘til we face that moment.

Thank you very much, Andrea. I sent you a SoupMail, so you can read it at your convenience. It lists the only two of my poems posted on PS that you have not yet read. Thanks. As always, I wish only good things to you and yours! :) Bartholomew

I like this. It's thought provoking. I would say if it gives you a rush, it is not even really fear. For example, rides at a carnival, I am not afraid of them but some are afraid of them. Real fear is something I never like!

Great job with this Etheree(A form that confounds me). The "line breaks" are controlled by the form yet you have melded them into a cohesive rhythm. Nicely done. thanks for entering the contest

Thank you very much, Greg! As always, I appreciate your positive, affirming comments, my friend. Congratulations on your #1 rhyming win with "A Bird and A Boy" - absolutely loved it!! If you have a minute, will you please read my acrostic, "Freedom," and let me know what you think? (Lots of views but no comments; not sure why). Thanks! :) Bartholomew

There's a truth in this poem. Congratulations Bartholomew! :-)

Thank you very much, Mark! I appreciate your kind comment, and I sincerely apologize for my belated acknowledgment (not on purpose, just an oversight on my part; sorry). Thank you also for your encouraging words regarding my poem, "Solitude in Academia." Happy holidays and all my best to you! :) Bartholomew
