The Valiant

I fear not the Death that will kill me, I only fear that I may not be ready to receive him at the door when he comes visiting.
I fear not the fire that will consume me, I only fear the scars it will leave behind.
I fear not the failure that stares at me in the face. I only fear that I may not be able to move a muscle and try.
I fear not fear itself, I only fear the smell of cowardice.
I fear not falling down, I only fear not picking myself up.
I fear not reaching the finish line, I only fear not hitting the ground running.
I fear not the dark clouds, I only fear if the sun will show her face again.
I fear not the vociferous storms, I only fear if I will weather the storm.
I fear not walking on water, I only fear if his hand will hold me up when I look away and sink.
I fear not being on top, I only fear if I will stay on top.
I fear not being indigent, I only fear if my hands will till the soil.
I fear not the punch life throws at me, I only fear if I can fight back.
I fear not being heartbroken, I only fear if I may be able to move on.
I fear not who I am today, I only fear who I may become tomorrow.
I fear not my foe's frown, I only fear my friend's smile.
I fear not walking behind enemy lines, I only fear being caught.
I fear not judgement day, I only fear if my name will be on the wrong book.
