A Fearful Mind

By Shraddha Arora

 
 
 
 A fearful mind
  
 I often ask myself - "Why do I fear?"
 Is it the fear to fall or is it the fear of not rising after the fall?
 It is difficult to say what I fear more, but I fear both. 
 And in this fear, 
 I am in a status quo; keeping my head low. 
 The question is how far can I go if I keep it all below?
  
 My mind battles every day. 
 Worries what people will say.
 But should I even care?
 When I know they will say it anyway? 
  
  
 It’s a phase and it shall pass.
 But if I let my fears surpass,
 I will be lost in what I am
 And may not become what I Can.
