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. However, the truth is that fear is a perfectly normal feeling to experience and we would all feel a lot better if we simply allowed ourselves to feel it fully. If we do not we will have somatic symptoms of fear that are much more painful than simply allowing the feeling to be felt.

    Poem About Feeling Confusion

    A plethora of predicaments race in my mind at best.
    Which one can I fathom to ponder about next?
    Shall I even think of acting upon what my mind stirs about,
    or cry my soul asleep by this never-ending drought?

    I try to remember exactly what it is that I fear.
    Is it the passing of time or the love that I lack?
    Is it the mistakes that I've made or the fact that I can't bring the past back?
