Fear controls us.
It controls our words,
It controls our actions,
It controls our lives.

We try new things,
But we can't,
We fear.

You fear change,
Fear vulnerability,
Fear Fear.

Tonight I missed.
I missed out on a great,
Wonderful,
Amazing opportunity,
That I have been waiting,
Waiting for over three years to gain.

I missed her,
I feared,
I feared her words,
Her rejection,
Her amazingness,
My expectations.

Had I not feared,
I would have known.
I could have lived,
I could have loved,
I could have been,
Been with her.

But i feared.
It was once said;
The only thing we have to fear,
Is fear itself.

I fear, fear.

I love.

I lost.

I never gained.

I feared...

Excellent! We fear the unknown but we have to have faith to take that leap in the dark. Wonderful things happen when we don't let fear over take us.

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?

Fear can be such a pain in the *** can't it?  But we all must leanr not to let fear control our lives, because if it does, we miss out on a lot of great things!

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!
