Fear is Our Biggest Impediment

For many of us, fear is our biggest impediment!

Fear grips us, cripples us, and enslaves us!being different

 

We are afraid of the dark
We are afraid of heights
We are afraid of adventure
We are afraid of the unknown

We are afraid of criticism
We are afraid of failure
We are afraid of trying
We are afraid of dreaming

We are afraid of loneliness
We are afraid of attention
We are afraid of loving
We are afraid of affection

We are afraid of being talked about
We are afraid of not being talked to
We are afraid of being ignored
We are afraid of not being priority

We are afraid of dependence
We are afraid of begging
We are afraid of giving
We are afraid sharing

We are afraid of disappointment
We are afraid of embarrassment
We are afraid of getting hurt
We are afraid of pain

We are afraid of helpers
We are afraid of solicitation
We are afraid of donations
We are afraid of alms

But, let us not be afraid of reaching out
Asking for worthy help
Love regardless

Let us embrace loneliness
Live endlessly
Life with all its uncertainties

Let us give unconditionally
Against all odds,

Let us break the encumbrance of fear!

When we Let Us hang down…..

ImageIn a society where everything costs something: time, money, friendships, love, family, we all tend to get a upright several times. 

No smiles, no family time or playtime, no money and love lost. 
 
Even the jokes sound bitter, lovers become bitter suicidal exes, as Tyler of the 5th then said
 
That moment of passion, intimacy, longing and bondage to each other when we made our children, are no more
 
Instead replaced by separate exits and entrances, distant living, estranged communication, gloomy faces.
 
Texting, gChat, Viber, is how we handle family business now, but sorry no more Video Chat
 
But then, we decide to let loose, forget about the worries, the failed dreams, the animosity, the sorrows of our hearts, dreams differed, failed marriage out of wedlock
 
We ignore the pain, and replace it with healing
 
We put antiseptic on gloomy faces, and wear our happy faces
 
You take a moment to reflect on what comes out of your mouth, stop it or say something beautiful
 
You let children be little, and give them a time of their life.
 
You realize that, YES! you too, can still be a babysitter -for others
 
You put off solo work, and take time to enjoy family and friends, even when others do not return that favor.
 
You win all those skeptical of your goodness, and ‘undercover mean people’
 
You go out for a run, when feeling distraught and tempted to withdraw, and come back ready to mix and mingle
 
You do not let a “NO” wear you down or bring your tears and grief. Instead, you go out and party. 
 
You choose to look at life positively, expect positive happenings and forget those who pump no excitement to your heart
 
 
And, just let Us hang down……beautifullyImage
