Fear is the Wrong Key to Success


If you can keep your fear at bay,
You can perform most things your way,
Or do them better, come what may,
Improving in all spheres, each day!

If you can take your foes fearless,
They can be made almost harmless;
If you express your love careless,
You ought to lose in life needless.

Fear’s a negative emotion
That brings defeat to a nation;
Fear can upset your best action,
Evoking wrong, a reaction.

The fear of God alone is good;
Fear is wrong key to success-hood!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
