Fear

Fear is a hungry animal  
It feeds a little at a time  
Silently taking away strength  
Making simple things more difficult  
Building mountains to climb
 
Fear becomes a whisper  
In the silence it can be heard  
Knows what buttons to push  
Heightens the emotions beyond control  
Eating away at common sense  
 
Fear touches the imagination  
Bringing the shadows out of darkness
The feelings of uneasiness get stronger  
Legs become heavy and hard to move  
Itís like being gripped by invisible hands  
 
Fear clings in times of uncertainty  
Putting doubt where there shouldnít be  
Creeps through defences when least expected
It knows what your thinking  
Cause this beast becomes the thoughts  
 
Fear is the straight jacket  
That ties you up in knots  
Coming through the air like a breath  
Itís cold on skin  
Thatís when reason goes awry
