F for Fear!!

image source: www.coolnsmart.com

The world seems bright,
And everything nice!
You want to try things,
But fear stops thy!

Dreams beckon you,
To move ahead in life!
But you can’t do that,
'Coz fear holds you back!

What if people laugh?
What if I fail?
Fears and doubts like that,
Stop you from prevail!

You watch people succeed,
And wish to be like them!
Not realizing even once,
That you could be even more!

Time doesn't wait for you,
It keeps ticking away.
And when you realize this
It would already be late!

Stop surrendering to your fears,
Face Everything And Rise!
Or the only option left will be
To Fear Everything And Run!!

 PS: Linking this post to the A-Z Challenge 2014 and Ultimate Blog Challenge April 2014.




Until the next post,
Keep Smiling :)

Love,
Swathi :)
