Fear Itself

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"

But if that's the case

I should never be afraid to embrace

who I am.

They say time flies

and days go by

never in any denial

of any trail

that has been worthwhile.

If fear was such a problem with me

then why did I make that plead

I mean, the case has been

a steady race with both me and my grace.

Fear is just fear 

and the only thing we have to fear

is fear itself.

I'm not talking about running through your thoughts 

in the dark at 3 am

I'm talking about not getting anything done like the hoover dam

Today is the day to embrace

all that you have never done due to fear

and keep building up faith.
