Fearless–by Mark W. Hardwick
As the wind blows and clouds darken
And storm approaches– ominous in its potential
What do we fear– loss, injury or death?
The mind produces uneasiness
Fear stalks you from inside-out and outside-in
Based on condemnation, self-loathing and real threats
Fearlessness is courage, confrontation,compassion
Knowing this sets you free
Illusions take center stage
Panic can immobilize you
And the storm still approaches
What do we fear?
While reality slaps you in the face
We can freeze and action stops
Fear itself grips your insides and out
Facing fear is the only way through it.
Stamp-out the fear demons
Ask or call for help
Be strong take the risk to face it and act
On the other-side are not dark shadows
But meaning, understanding, support
Based in Trust, Forgiving and Love.
Love must come then fear is gone.
The way to love is only through the fear
Face it for love awaits, love awaits, love awaits.
