THE FEAR

Four letter word 
ton full of baggage
engulfing the spirit
a blow too savage

Fear of failure
figment of imagination
ruling the mind
clipping the wings
just before take off

Shackles of fear
too hard to break free from
the speculation runs rife
it imprisons for life

Fearing the fear
many a great feats nipped in the bud
leaving a cloud of despondency
that rains havoc
drenching the soul

Filled with shades of grey
bereft of joyous colour
fear likes it sombre
makes the life duller

Muster the courage
to overcome fear
for it would be worth it
saving the life that's so dear
