What exactly are you,
Striking terror big and small?
Oh fear, you are double faced:
Paralysing the bravest of hearts
Or filling the faint with a sudden surge of power.

You feed off lack of faith
Knowledge or trust,
The dark unknown strengthens you
Beyond the capability of our minds to see through.

It's like an invisible stronghold -
Your grip on the subconscious.
A permanent resident uninvited
Yet stealthily you work, unawares.

If only we could let go; let go
Of our apprehensions, inhibitions
And take a leap of faith
Or submit wholly to fate,
You would cease to exist, oh fear,
Be but an illusion of distant memory.
