Adieu, Fear

Dear Fear,

 

You remember me, I’m sure.

You pick me apart at the seams.

You make me feel insecure,

And attack my self-esteem.

 

You know my pressure points,

Know just where to strike.

You make me weak in the joints

By scaring me, which I dislike.

 

However, this is my new step.

I’m done with the vile mind game.

Round and round we had leapt, 

But you must, will, be tamed. 

 

I no longer live in fear,

And I will never again wither. 

Don't send your acerbic leers

In the night, for I won't quiver.

 

I'm not the little meek girl

You used to enjoy tormenting.

Time placed me in the world,

My courage fermenting.

 

It was nice knowing you,

And here I bid adieu.

May we never meet again,

And the road rise to meet you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Haley
