The Fear- A Poem

The fear of change

And the fear of nothing changing

The fear of love

And the fear of hate

The fear of pain

And the fear of feeling nothing

The fear of everything

Why are we so driven by fear?

Why do we live in a paradox?

As someone who lives with an anxiety disorder, I know quite a lot about being afraid and how it can rule your life. This poem stems from my feelings about that. I have been doing more soul searching recently and thinking a lot about how afraid we are of everything around us. In so many ways, we let that hold us back from doing what we love. And we let it stop us from being our true selves and achieving out true potential.

What are you afraid of? What scares you more than anything? Do you have any phobias? Do you let your feelings of being scared hold you back from achieving your true potential? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

  1. On the topic I can only say that fear, when compared to irrational fear or phobia, is the subliminal awareness that each of us is still hesitant on aspects of reality, threats, or bad persons in our immediate surroundings. Once we survive a real trial of fire we tend to handle that specific fear much better, though such is a learning process, not an easy auto-solution.

    Spiritually our inner fears help us learn introversion and developing into better persons, step by step. I always found meditation helpful, but each individual has the own solutions or failures.

    Poetically you wrote a wonderful piece of poetry. Thank you, for sharing it freely with all the world!

    1. Thank you so much! And thanks for sharing your thoughts it was really interesting to read. I find meditation and yoga really helpful for my anxiety too but of course everyone has something different that helps them.

    1. Yeah it really does make our lives so much more difficult. I mean there’s so much we could do if fear didn’t exist but unfortunately we’re stuck with it.

  2. Fear is nothing but illusion which is blocking us from seeing the reality. I have get rid of all sorts of fear since I step into my age of reason and enlightenment. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Amazing! I learned to live with fear and use it. Sometimes is better to face your fears and reborn as warrior.. This is progress! You know…the strongest steel goes through the hottest fire.

    1. That is so true! We have to go through a lot in life but at the end of the day it makes us stronger and braver then we were before!

  4. What fear to me is a reality check,but how long can you keep going when reality meets you and keeps you.
    What then,and how can one live when fear is always there. we are to use it, but not live in it.

    1. Yeah I think if you can learn to use fear to achieve your goals it can be very helpful. As long as you don’t succumb to fear and let it hold you back.

    1. Yeah I mean we have evolved to fear everything as a defence mechanism but sometimes it’s hard for your brain to know what to fear and when to fear specifically and I guess that’s where the problem sets in.

  5. Fear breeds uncertainties and holds us back from moving forward. Good one!

  6. Fear knocked, faith answered. There was no one at the door 😊👍👍
    Great read though pooj. I remember my own struggles with this common thread which is corrosive among almost all of us, I still have them at times…
    Very poignant and valid. Thank you

    1. Thank you so much!
      Yes fear can be so corrosive and can really ruin your life. It’s sad but we just need to learn to deal with it.
