Fear the most varying concept in our lives,
That lingers behind our every dream,
A variable that can break us or
Make us greater beyond our wildest fantasies
A variable that can be the biggest inhibitor blocking;
Our simplest want,
Our casual daydreams,
Our wished realities.
Lingering deep down our unconsciousness
Our every action
Making us second guess our every decision.
Haunting our every move, our every thought,
Fear always stands in every situation we fall
Fear is the little voice that tells us
‘you can never make it’
Fear is that blink, that squint that shutter when reality is on our face.
Fear is the unseen, unasked, unrequested protector from our desires our dreams our moment.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
