To discern our fears


To discern our fears

Or be afraid to face fear

Which path enlightens?

My son Marco and I were discussing fear.  While I felt that fear is not necessarily a good thing, Marco pointed out that fear is necessary for survival and decision making.  He then asserted that fear is very different from being afraid.  I’ve come to believe that he is correct.

  1. Your poem reminds me of Frost’s “Road not taken”… Thus, I’d say to discern our fears is the path that enlightens… Great share!… Best wishes, Aquileana ⭐

  2. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His instructions have good insight. His praise endures forever.” Psalm 111:10 HCSB

    That popped into my head when I read your poem. I guess fear has it’s good points. 😀
