Fear Me

Fear me for I am fear,

I lurk in your head and adhere.

I stay by your side making sure,

You doubt yourself and so much more.

I won’t let you reach your full potential,

That is my purpose essential.

I hold back your efforts sincere,

I can kill your dreams as they appear.


I don’t need logic or clarity,

I feed off your insecurity.

Every time you think it won’t be enough,

It is I whispering that it will be tough.

I know how to crush your spirit,

I do so every time I visit.

I don’t need an invitation to come by,

No matter what you want, there won’t be a goodbye.


You want to be rid of me but don’t know how,

You wait for my permission to allow.

But I don’t control my presence in your head,

I rise from situations that you dread.

I feed when you hesitate,

I thrive when you are unable to dedicate.

So find a way to stay strong through it all,

Even when you are pushed up against a wall.
