Abraham Maslow-quote., Being like children., Facing our fears., Pinterest photo quotes., Pinterest photo-photodisc., poetry by Yu/stan/kema, Resources we need., Things we must do., Ways we cope with fear.
Fear follows us, nipping at our heels,
As we walk down life’s rough road
Into risky situations and the unknown.
Like children, we hide from it if we can.
Sometimes, we run from it quickly,
Catching our breath when feeling safe.
But we learn in time, to sometimes wait
for its approach with quivering lips.
We find, in time, we have to face it,
With faltering courage and our strength,
Hoping we can create a change
In ourselves and in our lives.
We do away with negative thoughts;
Bring our secrets in to the light;
Find the courage to make a friend;
And have the will to live again.
Like children, we relearn:
To taste the hours with passion;
To cherish moments of wonder;
To hug those we connect with;
To share our deepest thoughts;
And find a purpose for living.
To do these things, we find:
We must face our fears with courage;
Do battle with ghosts from the past;
Forgive those who hurt us deeply;
And find our way back humbly
To the God we knew as children.
