Anxious tight clenched jaw
Teeth grinding slamming door
Brain chatters loudly with speed
Incessant fear hides what you need

Mercury retrograde heart aflutter
Sometimes for you sometimes another
Uneven breathing marks passing time
Suddenly stop take air for a while

Why this agitation
Unknown future without elation
Frightened child lives within
Likes routine where it’s been

Adult ego questing spirit
Takes us places stretching limit
Preparing for the journey ahead
Playing scenarios expectant dread

Terror of failure death of a kind
Reeking havoc torturing mind
Good news learn to resist
Allow treasures in your midst

Learn to check negative thinking
Let go of thoughts without blinking
Create the world in your mind
Leave the negativity behind

How has fear stood in your way robbing your experience?

Why not do “it” anyway?
