Fear

Fear

i fear there is more confusion than certainty
is my lack of discernment coming our way?

i fear there is more hurt than healing
do i lack empathy to perceive how you’re feeling?

i fear there is more pain than ease
is my trepidation hindering our peace?

i fear there is more sadness than solace
do i miss the signs or am i just clueless?

i fear there won’t be you, needing me
i fear…

    This one is a little melancholy. Fear does seep into our lives but we have to push through the fear or we will be too afraid to really live!

  4. AW. A heart-toucher! Fear comes to all of us. And we all want to be loved and needed.
    (What a sweet face in that photo. πŸ™‚ )
    Your poem makes me think of a fave quote…
    “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” – Marie Curie
