FEAR AND FAITH

One dreads what he knows will come
If it comes with reason to fear.
Though courage may reside in some,
One shakes when danger is near.
One can’t, over a minefield, walk
With confidence that he will survive.
Though he may convince others with talk,
They can’t argue if they’re not alive.
Tis easy to make statements so bold,
Till death stares us straight in the face;
Then the warmth of confidence grows cold
And fear takes over its place.
For Tis only from where we feel safe
That such statements are confidently told
