Nothing To Do With Fear - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I use to fear the unknown.
Until I was shown each day I live,
From the moment I was born to face steps...
I had to accept to take I had never taken before,
Were obstacles and not impossibilities.
And the more shown fears came to appeared at my door.
To undo.
I proved to myself alone...
That those unknown fears appearing,
Would still be there condoned...
If I did not face them to remove with a doing.
As if a purpose I was here to serve had nothing to do with fear.
