Fear Factor

I am posting a poem on Courage which I had posted earlier.  I may be quite afraid of heights, reptiles and ghosts. But my greatest fear is of human psychos. I fear people who are vengeful, spend their time in witchcraft and black magic and those whose sole purpose of existence is to create fear and panic. These sadistic people get a thrill out of engaging in such acts throughout the day.

They may have gone through some form of abuse as kids and badly need the help of  society to wake them up from their ignorance. Only love and understanding can conquer this problem



When you are in the middle of critics
And not a  single soul believes you
When the whole world thinks you are a liar
Can you stand up for the truth?

When failure stares at you
When anguish, sorrow and pain confront you
When storms tear you asunder
Do you still follow your dream?

When there is a steep mountain to climb
And your legs are weak and tired
When the slope is slippery and arduous
Do you lose sight of your goal?

When this body is shrieking in agony
And the final moment nears
When the last breath is seeping out
Can you smile and face death?

Courage is not bravado
You don’t have to shout and roar
It is that little voice within you
That constantly guides you
