What Fear Means

Fri, 02/15/2019 - 10:13 -- Mdaws

As a kid you are taught fear.

As a child or baby you know no fear.

It can become damaging if you allow it.


My fear is letting people in on my inner-most secrets.

Everyone has them.

However, only some decide to share them.


They can range from what previously happened

They can pop up in times I least expect them

I can be enjoying my day and then 

A door opens and closes in my mind and lets them in and out


I can be eating, spending time with friends, or more

and they can creep up on me like an alligator catching its prey

Though THEY are amongst us all, THEY do not have to rule our lives

Just like a baby who knows no fear, we can be un-fearful if we tap into our baby side.
