What is Fear

What is fear?

Does it glow in the dark?

Is it shadows in the light?

Will I know when it’s here?

 

What is fear?

Is it life without hope?

Is it a world without a joke?

Will I know when it’s near?

 

What is fear?

Is it what makes us cry?

Is it what makes us not try?

Does it whisper in our ear?

 

What is fear?

Does it control all my moods?

Does it give me bad news?

Is it what makes my face blue?

 

Fear can be scary.

Sometimes it comes unexpected,

but don’t be scared…

just check it.

 

Whatever it’s called

fear’s nothing new

so when fear comes around to you

you’ll know just what to do.

 

Fear is pretty basic.

When it comes you can face it.

Stand tall, face your fear,

and when your done you can erase it.
