Portfolio_1_Poem_Fear

As my mind persists, fear ceases to exist.

Fear has been nothing but a stronghold, leaving my body lifeless in the cold.

I subsided into a fetal position, seeing myself as a flower that would never have the chance to unfold. 

As crooks swarmed my gates, they left me bleeding lifeless. I became the wounded soldier, crawling in the trenches.

 Foolishly, I lay there waiting, hoping that someone would save me. Yes, searching for a savior in the arms of stranger.

Yet, I have never found one better, than God’s unconditional love.

I read the scriptures, saying I have not given you a spirit of fear.

 I hold these words dear.

 As my mind persists, fear ceases to exist.

 Fear’s only mission is to strangle the very idea of faith that creates life.

That’s why so many enemies were sent my way to destroy mine.

Yet, God preserved mine.

Now I hope I don’t run out of time, because you only get one time.

You get one time to break down the walls that continue to blind the mind.

There are so many of us live under the false perception that we can continue to live in ignorance.

Ignorance kept me thinking it was okay for a man to have his way.

Fear kept me from letting go.

Violent relationships stink worse than dirty toes.

Ignorance kept me thinking it was okay to run and play, not paying attention to the consequences at the end of the day.

As my mind persists, fear ceases to exist.

Fear kept me, kept me bound to a lifestyle in which I was living foul.

I was a lost soul, running like a lost child.

Fear keeps us bound.

People are bound to tradition which at times keeps them from taking an authoritative position against demented actions.

For instance, in traditional China women bound the feet of their daughters.

 Told them they were prettier if their feet were smaller.

Yes, we pass the idea of passiveness along, like a children’s nursery rhyme song.

Fear destroys the voices, keeping you from singing your song.

As my mind persists, fear ceases to exist
