develop strength

A little while ago
I told fear to go fuck itself
I put my feet up
I felt wonderful

This tiny parasitic emotion
Paralyzing me
Controlling me
Creates havoc in my soul

But fear is just a monster that we create
It feeds on the powers that we give it
We are the ones who hand it weapons
We tell it to take aim
Lock and load

Because we’re are more afraid of fear itself
Then admitting that we are afraid
Instead of facing it head on
Too many of us let it enslave us

Years in jobs that we hate
Relationships that suffocate
Spreading paranoia, resentment, and darkness
Deeper and deeper the knife becomes
Light it cannot see

Take hold of it, my friends
Before it slips too deep
Slithering into our arteries
Causing our dreams to bleed

Life is short
Moments are fleeting
Is a cliche for a reason
So throw the knives and guns down
Step on them

Tell fear to be quiet and sit down
and tell it to watch you drive
to bigger milestones
to places that you didn’t even see yourself

Don’t give in to  fear anymore
Don’t let it overstay
Don’t make the mistake
Of letting it call you its slave
