To Let Fear Go

Updated on February 29, 2012

The Hiding Has To Stop

To be out of control and not know what to do

May sound silly but it is true

Cold sweats come and then your stomach does flip flops

We imagine the worst by trying to avoid someone or something constantly

There is no safe place

Every corner we have to peak

Wondering what is this that chases me like a dog

Waiting to tear at my skin only to do harm so deep within

My head aches in pain and my body tense and firm

I can't sleep

I can't think

The troubles that I see are deep in my mind of misery

No horror movie tops this bad feeling

Even bad car accident stops don't hold the same fear

The feeling that nibbles then bites

My worst nightmares have come true

I am all tied up and fighting constanly to break free

When all I have to do is let go

Come face to face and talk about what makes my mind race

I have to uncover the real problem

Avoiding the truth and accepting my mistakes

Listening to my conscious to guide me forward

We all are human and we are not perfect in any way

We tend to judge too harsh and fail to give ourselves a break

We over exaggerate and tend to complicate matters

Looking at problems on paper is one way to understand the things that bother us

Talking to others and finding solutions that could possibly work

Throwing out ideas and working on ways to solve the toughest problems

In the end we are always better off than we started

Lifting the heavy heart and replacing it with real solutions is only the beginning

Finding new ways to enjoy our accomplishments

That always out weigh all the troubles that we face

One more day and one more scare let go

Life is a challange we all experience at sometime or another

Rising to the top like a floaty is something we all can do

With practice and help

Until one day we can laugh what gave us so much pain

We can sing instead of hold our head in shame

      This was so encouraging. I loved the way you describe those terrible feelings, almost like ´I´m afraid, but I don´t know what I´m afraid of´´ (at least that how it happenswith me) But you finished so perfectly positive. How much will this problem matter in 5 years time? great hub as always.
