1. “In the Night”
In the darkness we fear
The unknown and the near
Shadows dance in the light
And we pray for morning’s sight
The ground so far below
The fear begins to grow
My heart racing in fear
As I try to draw near
3. “The Future”
What lies ahead is unclear
My heart fills with fear
The unknown looms ahead
And fills me with dread
4. “The Unknown”
The world is a mystery
Filled with uncertainty
I fear what I do not know
And where it will all go.
The Fear of Being Alone
Nightfall brings with it my dread,
A gnawing fear that fills my head.
The empty darkness whispers to me,
Telling me that I’m the only one left to be.
In this lonely world, I stand alone.
No one to comfort me, no one to take me home.
The shadows move and dance around
Creating visions of monsters that I’ve found
Clawed hands reach and grab at my soul
As I struggle to find my way through the black hole
I can hear my heart pounding in my chest
As my mind bitterly protest
But then comes the morning light,
With its warmth and a new hope in sight
I can see the world in a brand new way
And know that I don’t have to be scared to stay
I take a step forward with a newfound confidence
As I face the day with brave resilience.
The Fear of Losing Someone You Love
We all hold tight to the ones we love
But knowing that we might lose them, is a push and shove
Fear creeps up and starts to whisper in our ear
Reminding us that our loved ones may not always be here
We see them every day, and we feel so blessed
But something in our hearts cannot rest
We try to make the most of our times together
But the fear of losing them makes us feel like a feather
Every moment we have left feels so fleeting
We cherish each story, every laugh, and every greeting
Sometimes it’s hard to stop ourselves from crying
Knowing that we’ll miss all those little things that we find so satisfying
But then we realize that all we can do is cherish the moments
And just focus on what that person truly represents
We can’t control the things that happen in life
But we can control how we deal with the strife
So, we choose to hold on to the love that we share
And we face our fears with courage and care
We know that our loved ones will always be in our heart
Even if they someday have to depart.
The Fear Within
The fear within, it grips my soul,
A heavy weight that takes its toll.
It’s always there, just lurking near,
As if it feeds on all my fear.
In quiet moments, I hear it creep,
A sly and cunning thing to keep.
It whispers doubts, it plants its seed,
And makes me question all I need.
I fear the future, what it holds,
Will I be brave or will I fold?
And in the past, my fears take root,
What if mistakes make it a moot?
I fear the darkness, and what’s unseen,
What is there that I’ve yet to glean?
And yet the light can be so bright,
That I’ll be blinded by its sight.
I fear the judgement, of those I know,
What will they think, of how I’ve grown?
And yet, who am I to please,
When all that matters is to be at ease?
The fear within, it challenges me,
To be strong, and to be free.
To face my fears, and stand my ground,
And let the fear, no longer be bound.
Fears that Linger
Fears that linger in the mind
Leave no peace and are unkind
They creep about both night and day
And make us dread the path we lay
The fear of failure haunts us all
We tremble at the thought of the fall
The worry that we’re not enough
Can leave us feeling weak and rough
And what of death, that ultimate unknown?
It chills us to the very bone
The thought of leaving all we love
Can seem too much to rise above
We fear rejection, being alone
And losing touch with all we’ve known
The fear of change can make us freeze
And leave our souls ill-at-ease
But let us not forget the fear
Of what we don’t know and can’t see clear
The monsters hiding in our mind
That make us question all we find
For fears are often things we make
And it’s up to us to give or take
The power they hold in our life
And whether we let them cause us strife
So face your fears with head held high
And no longer will they make you cry
For life is full of twists and turns
And it’s the fears we conquer that we truly earn.
