Fear - Poem by merna ibrahim

so many years.
so many fears.
so many tears.

The wound doesn't want to heal.
The pain is just too real.

It would destroy all the sanity in us.
But the time can't erase this cuss.

But the courageous who resist.
But the courageous who insist.
But the courageous who persist.

We need the bravery.
We must fire the slavery.

We must defeat our frustration.
We must defeat our hesitation.

We must vanquish our dread.
We must reject any threat.

    so many years.
    so many fears.
    so many tears.lovely poem to be gifted with...10
    no to shed tears
    for the want of fears
    it shall not bear
    life shouldn't go out of gear
    one may definitely hear
    when some one says O, dear
    come close and so near
    I may speak
    your future is not bleak
    you are on highest peak
    so to say you are not weak
    You will go on for weeks
    i may confide and seek
    but you don't weep
    promises always keep

    read mine....cry not

    Wise Girl! a great content defies all obstacles! ! !

    that's our life full of fears from the mysteries, from the Future...
    that's our life full of fears from the wounds, from the Past...
    that's our life we have to unveil the mysteries and remedy the wounds in the Present, it's our chance to do that NOW! ! ! the Braves believe in their inner STRENGTH! ! !

    a Brave 10/
    Thanks For Sharing Your FEARS

    A very inspirational poem Merna...........You have described the true essence of feaf with simple yet sound words and then the way you have twisted your poem in the second half showing the encouragement and convincing the feared ones to try and erase their agony and reassemble themselves for only then they can walk away easily through fear..........One should really muster up some courage considering the messega conveyed in this poem.......10 (Report)Reply
