Silent Fear

Silent Fear
Where do you go
When pushed below?
Buried deep, so deep I thought you were done,  
I was sure I had won.
 
Silent Fear
Where do you hide
When concealed inside?
My heart rate quickens,
My body sickens.
 
Silent Fear
Exactly when did you start
In my life to play a part?
From nine or ten,
Where did it begin?
 
Silent Fear
Was it the raised hand...shoe...or belt?
When fear I first felt?
Or the many unkind spoken word,  
From my Mother I heard?
 
Silent Fear
How is it that you hide so well?
Come now, come now...tell.
Will you ever completely go away?
Or are you here for a lengthy stay?
 
Silent Fear
You're not welcome here, leave me be!
Why do you continue to torture me?
Too many years you've fought to thrive.
I'm stronger than that, I will survive.

Even when I think I've got it all under control. I tell myself: I'm not worried, I'm not afraid. God's got my back. I know Fear is still there. Behind the smile, under the laughter, somewhere deep inside...because it comes out in other forms. Like, tense muscles, migraines, nausea, increased heart rate...
