Friends of Fear

Folder: 
Crimson

It does not walk this path alone
It travels with its friends in tow
No fear is never on its own


When you let the beast inside
The fear takes hold of your mine
Ignorance follows, tried and true
To take control of you
To turn compassionate hearts cold
Making arrogant, selfish, broken souls


Fear never walks on its own
But always has its friends in tow


Innocence the price
As fear creeps inside
With friends following behind


Jealousy
Anger
Rage
Fear


Ignorance
Arrogance
Hopelessness
Fear


Sanctity
Safety
Self esteem
And consumed by fear


Fear never walks alone
It travels with its friends in tow

Friend of Fear

A sudden attack of some disease or an accident

  When someone denies their

 

When someone denies their own feeings of grief,

Turning all feelings on you,

Blind to their habits, the anger comes out,

Wanting to cry but tears can't make it through,

Begging with arrogance, holding on to the shame,

You are the cause of their suffering and pain,

Never accounting for wrongs they can't change,

It's a shame, but some people are slightly deranged,

They could turn it around,

But they don't have a clue,

All their able to see is to sue, sue, sue.

They'll blame the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,

They'll bury their pain in their pride,

The anger is violent, and needs ample relief,

Their own fears are the horse that they ride,

When everyone leaves them, more anger will surface,

And swallow them whole in a fugue,

Sorrow's a valid emotion we need,

Don't mistake that, and make yourself rude.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

STAND --- this goes so well

STAND --- this goes so well with STAND, RoC. 

Inspired by you:

 

Standing alone against your personal FEARS,

Like the STAND that conquers the pressure of one's peers,

STAND with many, or face the front line,

But don't STAND in LOVE'S way,

Then mope and whine!!

 

....

Spite hangs out with all the

Spite hangs out with all the gang,

I heard he's dating envy,

Callousness, has joined the group,

He just had a kid with angry,

They named the baby 'Hate', I heard,

From ego's sister-in-law,

And they had a huge fight in the bar last night,

Because Love's living with their Granpaw.

 

 

...hehe... the whole dysfunctional gang.

 

Love your enemies.

Keep them close.

If your love is strong,

you will conquer long,

and your faith will stave off all morose.


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Like it or not-- It is very

Like it or not--

It is very clear,

It's one big family,

Like it or not---

It's inside you,

To one or another degree,

Like it or not---

Just look inside,

It's within,

Undoubtedly!

A friend of fear is doubt. A

A friend of fear is doubt.

A friend of fear is shame.

A friend of fear is that darned dark feeling

that you are not worth anything.

A friend of fear is a trixter.

He'll make you feel that he is right.

Consuming your thoughts with his false confidence, 

he'll scare you away from your own heart's light.

So don't make friends with fear.

Instead make friends with love.

For love is fear's opposite.

And Love deserves your precious time.

Isolnation

 

 

 

Isolation of every nation,

Fear eats it up,

It segregates and blames,

Fear is the sinister voice that says,

I want this "sole nation" my praise.

Yes, hate has always taken..

Hate has always taken the seat as love's opposite, but in actuality, fear is love's opposite. hate is a by product and manifestation of hating oneself....and so why the hateful person, is, most often, the extremely repressed fearful person.

I can do that

We can work the details.
I just searched for it on bumper stickers. But we have to word it originally, so as not to copy.
Use the one you wrote instead of the one I wrote.
