Fear…

Standard

Fear is an uncomfortable emotion,
It clouds our thoughts and weighs shoulders down with the unknown…

Fear makes hands tremble…
Tremble as they pull doors closed and flip switches off,
Tremble as they shift furniture out of the way.
Tremble as they offer comfort, holding
hands and pulling closer to embrace.

Fear makes voices tremble…
Tremble as they whisper, “Are you okay?” and
“Take deep breaths” and “Everything is fine!”

Fear makes our hearts tremble…
Tremble as a quick “I love you” text is sent to mom;
an “I’m so glad you’re here with me” to a coworker.
Tremble at the unknown.

Fear makes our souls tremble…
Tremble as we hug a little tighter,
Tremble as we take calming breaths together,
Tremble as we sneak in one more embrace as we say our goodbyes.

Fear is an uncomfortable emotion,
It clouds our thoughts and weighs shoulders down with the unknown…
