Poems about Overcoming Fear

Fear creates limitations. When we fear, we become incapable of taking risks, of living our lives to the fullest. Whatever fear you are facing, whether it is a fear of love, of rejection, of heartbreak, of growing up, of being forgotten, or even of the dark, remember that your fear limits you. It prevents you from growing into a stronger, better person. Try to understand your fears, for when you understand them, they no longer have a power over you. Let go of fear, express it to someone and just release it.

    What a beautiful poem, one that so many of us can relate to, especially when "relating to" anyone or anything seems like an impossibility. Fabulous ending. Well done!
