Fear - & What of it.

I feared being alone
Until I learned to like myself.

I feared failure
Until I realized that I only fail when I don't try.

I feared success
Until I realized that I had to try in order to be happy with myself.
I feared people's opinions
Until I learned that people would have opinions about me anyway.

I feared rejection
Until I learned to have faith in myself.

I feared pain
Until I learned that it's necessary for growth.

I feared the truth
Until I saw the ugliness in lies.

I feared life
Until I experienced its beauty.

I feared death
Until I realized that it's not an end, but a beginning.

I feared my destiny,
Until I realized that i had the power to change my life.

I feared hate
Until I saw that it was nothing more than ignorance.

I feared love
Until it touched my heart, making the darkness fade into endless sunny days.

I feared ridicule
Until I learned how to laugh at myself.

I feared growing old
Until I realized that I gained wisdom every day.

I feared the future
Until I realized that life just kept getting better.

I feared the past
Until I realized that It could no longer hurt me.

I feared the dark
Until I saw the beauty of the starlight.

I feared the light
Until I learned that the
Truth would give me Strength.

I feared change ,
Until I saw that
Even the most beautiful butterfly
Had to undergo a metamorphosis
Before it could fly.

P.S. this poem was stolen, before i had realized the importance of copy-writing.
