Treasure Island

Stephen Katona

(26th November 1970 / Manchester, UK)

Let go of the fear

Let go of the fear,
Of a startled young deer,
Listening for the sound of padded paws,
In case they come with sharp claws.

Let go of the fear.
That you've learnt to revere,
Question the choice of your brain,
To make you feel more pain.

Let go of the fear.
It's time to interfere,
You can teach your amazing mind,
To be a little more kind.

Let go of the fear.
Cross a new frontier,
What makes you feel so harassed,
Could just be a memory from the past.

Let go of the fear.
Breathe deep the atmosphere.
To feel more calm,
Believe you'll come to no harm.

Let go of the fear.
Allow your health to re-appear.
Whatever you might feel,
May not be completely real.

Let go of the fear,
Telling you to hear.
You have to believe,
It changes how you perceive.

Let go of the fear,
That has become so severe,
When you listen less to yourself,
There are times it improves your health.

Let go of the fear,
That it will affect your career,
The injury in your arm,
May have healed like a charm.

Let go of the fear,
You've had for over a year,
If it makes your skin feel like a burn,
Or your tummy start to churn.

Let go of the fear,
Your new life is near,
There's no need to hurry,
It takes a while to let go of worry.

Let go of the fear.
And your soul may start to clear.
Don't let the pain in your head,
Fill your heart with dread.

Let go of the fear,
Of losing something dear.
You can lift that heavy cloud,
If the ringing in your ears is too loud.

Let go of the fear,
Allow the sound to disappear.
Find something to distract,
You'll feel less attacked.

Let the radio,
Remove some of your woe.
A calming song,
Will make you feel there's less wrong.

Let go of the fear,
Then give a loud cheer,
You've given a new order,
Waved goodbye to your disorder.

    ..........very nice....fear is one of those emotions which can help us, as much as hurt us.... (Report) Reply

    When our heart is in the grip of fear, we cannot enjoy life or make use of our innate faculties! If we patiently sit and analyse, we come to realize that most of our fears are illusory. A mind which is held captive of Fear can neither see the beauty nor the charm of life.....! So it is very crucial that we learn to conquer our irrational fears!

    Let go of the fear.
    And your soul may start to clear.
    Don't let the pain in your head,
    Fill your heart with dread.

    Enjoyed this sweetly rhyming poem with a powerful message! (Report) Reply

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
