Facing Fear…a cleansing soul

Facing Fear…a cleansing soul

Facing Fear…a cleansing soul

Do you see what fears you most,
what stands before you with indignation
begging response, or is your sight tainted,
the courage to face your demons too much,
so they fester in your dark recesses,
bubbling like a cauldron,
a brew of ill-intent.

Fear is lingering, no matter how hidden,
and we languish in its wake,
and as it grows within us,
it collects the darkness and intensifies,
a moment of relent becomes a monster
too difficult to face,
too strong to oppose.

Then, we are victims of our fear,
puppets of all we wish to ignore in life,
sitting within our depths
awaiting a malicious release into manifestation,
and then we face the dire consequence of inaction,
the beast released and interacting
with what is our life.

Clean is a soul without hidden fear,
all dealt with and faced in the light of day,
and pure is our sight,
when we can observe life and not dull its truth
with our tainted plight,
rather see clearly all,
even if it reflects poorly on ourselves.

    A great lesson all should learn. Very well penned, Tony. One cannot begin to conquer fear till they face their demons. Great work.

    Fear only exists within us, and we have control of how we handle it. Do we let it rule our lives or do we face our fears with courage and overcome them? Another great piece of writing by you, Tony.
