  • fear finds a cozy niche
    it plays out an old tune
    titillates and teases me
    watching me cringe
    its pendulum swinging
    really an old enemy
    so sick and tired
    this bully, that panic

    I breathe in and out
    slow down, steady now
    friends recognize me
    compassion caressing
    patience placating
    life enlightening
    facing fear fully
