Reasons to be fearful?

Crocodiles, speeding cars, noises in the dark.
Thunderstorms, ghosts and ghouls, shadows in the park.
Things unseen, facts unknown. Lions! Tigers! Bears!
Everywhere in life, fears can catch me unawares.

Supermarkets, aeroplanes, being underground.
Fireworks, bubble wrap – unexpected sound!
Do they like me? Am I mad? Have I broken laws?
All around, so much to fear. Thoughts to give me pause.

Making calls, networking, trying out a song.
On the job, on the stage, have I done it wrong?
Making friends, each new step, panic hard to shake.
A simple fix, so hard to do – give myself a break!

  1. Hmm…I can identify with most of this!

    Hope you’re able to give yourself a break and shake off those fears. I know it’s hard to do.

    That is a great little poem 🙂

    I can identify with most of this too! I think the best way to overcome fear about situations is to set yourself small goals to help overcome the anxiety. Not sure how that would work with crocodiles, lions, tigers and bears though 🙂

  2. To be fear, I’m not actually afraid of lions, tigers or bears. Crocodiles, on the other hand, are the stuff of nightmares.
