Where Is My Mind Without Fear?


Once I was
dangerously desperate

bold like an ox and
strong like steel

i used to rush
like a gust of wind

thunder and eat stone
fear I know not

dare everyone
to search my mind out

and in my heart
I only conceived

Indomitable and illuminated
Spirit

Slowly I am now
On the steps of concrete

Climb up a little
Success is too close

I just start to live
And fall in love too

with my life
But what a surprise!

I find my mind
Laid upon a bed

Full of fear
Terrified with

Unknown risk and danger
Where is my mind without fear?

    there is nothing to fear except fear itself. I find my mind laid upon a bed full of fear. but when you get out of bed fear has vanished

    Fear is a tool of the body just like being dangerous , bold and strong.
    Your mind uses fear to acheive necessaty goals.
    Fear is a powerful tool/weapon when channelled.
    As President Roosevelt said, 'the only thing we have to fear is fear itself ' (Report) Reply

    Fear comes naturally when we have something to lose. I heartily invite you to read my poems and give your views. (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
