Anxious nervous inside
Feeling helpless run hide
Sense of danger here before
Primal fear through that door

Essential discernments to make
Fear about now or an earlier take
What perspective do you choose
So fear is not perennial blues

Words for fear welling inside
Do it anyway fear is a guide
Thank the fright a warning sign
Wake up pay attention to mind

Warning from a historic past
Primitive guard helped you last
Feelings not all about now
In the body reflect slow down

Fear an ally welcome old friend
Demands attention for the next bend
Learn to trust fear is a tool
Honor it manage it suffer no fool

What are you fearing now?

Can you treat fear as ally and friend helping you achieve a desired end?
