Fear Poems

Poems about Facing Fear

Fear is a part of life. It is part of the range of feelings that humans experience on a daily basis. In our culture, fear has come to be experienced as negative.

If we do not we will have somatic symptoms of fear that are much more painful than simply allowing the feeling to be felt.
