Fear

  Hearts that feel squeezed in the chest,
With moisture filling the palms of their hands.
Feeling out of breath.
And feet that are losing their grip on land.
Paralyzed minds
Unable to think clearly
Thoughts entwined
But no words, sadly
Those afraid to dream
Those afraid to fly
Afraid to be under their own steam
They lay in bed and sigh
Too scared to love
Too scared to trust
Too scared to show they love
Too scared to show they trust
Terrified of failure
No balls to face reality
Too much fright to be sure
Of your own ability
Afraid of all the wrong things
Unaware of the right fear
Which with wisdom
Is in the same kingdom
Everything else can be conquered
With a little faith
And some trust
And some love.
