If fear...

By FearlessDragon

If fear... 

Were a tree,

I would be the breeze
Shaking its leaves


If fear...

Were an ocean,

I would be a monster of the deep


If fear...

Were a woman,

She would be my lover


If fear... 

Were a butterfly,

I would be a caterpillar


If fear... 

Were a knife,

I would be made of stone


If fear...

Were a mountain,

I would be the snow
Dusting its highest peak


If fear...

Were the moon,

The darkside would be me


If fear...

Were the stars,

They would illuminate my galaxy


Likewise...


If fear.. 

Plants inside my mind,

The tiniest of seeds,

I crumble beyond belief

    My word... Well said, my friend. My favorite is the last stanza... Thank you. This makes me wonder, and I just love mind games.

    This is great! I love it. Once fear gets to us we fall and it overtakes us. We need to stay fearless. I love the imagery and symbolism, great touch.

    THAT IS WHY I WEED MY MIND DAILY. Fear will over run the garden of my mind and I must be vigilant. Very much enjoyed this and gets a four out of four heartbeats faster award.
