Fears dictate and do so seem to rule,

the minds and souls of all men,

The earliest of civilizations known,

afraid to face it's awe, way back then.



The march of time, asks not any names,

or whether we are to prepare,

Those that gain, show no worries of the same,

refusing life's doubts, to spare.



Are all sounds we hear, to sense dangers near,

in trepidation, and then to persist,

With trembling hands, and such anxious hearts,

must this be our way, to exist?



Should we face the darkness of the night,

and the unknowns of each new day,

Then to hide, as in the labyrinth of our minds,

and a reflection of the coward's way?



Say no to the questions, we're not afraid,

Face each new day, in our resolve,

Go the distance, with strength of our hearts,

freeing spirits, with no mysteries to solve..



Stand up in our unified gathering, this hour,

march to the drum of a new found power.

Strip off the robes of all worries and fears,

raise our glad voices, in triumphs and cheers.



The old stigmas of the fearful are withdrawn,

now herald the sunlight of a brand new dawn,

We shall approach each new challenge,giving our best,

then steadily onward, all shall press.



Conquering our foes, the worry and despair,

sharing with our kind, the reward, in our care.

The curtain of gloom and a bleakness, so seen,

withdrawn by our love, and spirits, so clean.

I wrote this work for all who worry and fear the future at hand, no matter the severity or the gentleness it holds for us all.

I changed my title and feel it is more appropriate for the work presented.

Do not worry for the morrow, for the day will take care of itself. Put away all fears of all the years and live as if your last breath would be your next.

Hi whonunuwho... wonderful read and one that I think many people live in and yet fear can be beaten with the knowledge of who we are. Knowing yourself is the key... voted up and reading on...
