Fear of Nothing but Fear
When shadows fall upon the ground,
And buildings' shapes are clear
Yet others seem distorted, if they are too near,
Do you begin to fear?
There's beauty in the darkness,
With shadows making shapes,
Until you think you hear a sound....
that makes you jump and turn around...
Alone you are,
There's no-one there,
But inside you are shaken.
If far from buildings you may be,
When trees and shrubs are your company.
And wind is whistling through the trees
And you hear voices come from these,
Softly in the swaying leaves a voice is talking,
Calling you..."Over here...." ...."Come this way..."...
It even calls your name.
Is someone playing a sick game?
Your nervousness is rising., Your heart is pumping fast,
Seeing blowing of the wind......
The trees have no control...
You are alone.
There's no-one there.
Yet, you hear voices
Floating o'er the air....
If your situation is inside your house,
The darknes and the shadows........
You need not let them own you,
Put on lights and music,
The shadows won't control you.
Until you hear a far off creak
Like footsteps on the stairs,
Your body freezes at the thought
Of someone walking up the stairs,
Is it real? Your music blares....
Turn it down and listen.....
You hear the footsteps, the creaking boards,
Are doors locked? Did you remember?
Alone again........ There's no-one there....
Yet you stand frozen as you stare
At doors and windows, you hope you locked,
What will happen if you forgot?
Fear can hold you prisoner
All the ghosts and monsters
From when you were a child,
They haunt you now..........
But do not let them.!
They were not real!
They are not now!
The breeze is real, the shadows too,
But they will bring no harm to you,
Natures' beauty may have fooled you,
Only if you let it.!
Say you won't allow the darkness to engulf you,
There's nothing in the dark that wasn't in the light,
Embrace the moon and stars and all of earths delights,
When early morning sunrise
erases all the fright.
You can hold your head high, forget about the night,
Though come again it will.......
The shadows and the dark,
And only you can love or hate
The changes nature brings,
Choose to love it all!!!
The wind and rain, The dark and light,
The rivers and the oceans,
The mountains and the snow,
The sunshine of the Summer
That brings your cheeks aglow.
For life is short.
Be the best you can.
You needn't be an "also ran...."
