Fear of the Fearless

Fear of the Fearless

Ever notice how many
Are uneasy when they
Encounter someone who does not
Have fear of what they say?

Have you noticed, or are you
A person who pulls back
When you encounter someone who
Does fear and shyness lack?

Why is it we have such fear
When someone else shows none?
Why are those who are fearless
Labeled “the crazy one”

Is it “crazy” to not be
Afraid of anything?
To never be concerned about
What challenges may bring?

Have all those without fear truly
Lost all of their sense?
Or are the people who see their
Fearlessness and feel tense

Actually the ones who do
Deserve the label “crazy?”
The ones who live in fear because
They are too proud or lazy

Because they are concerned for their
Own comfort or their image
The ones who like to keep a safe
Distance from the big scrimmage

“Crazy,” “weird” or “reckless” are the
Words that are employed
By folks who see the fearless in
Action and are annoyed

Or feel inadequate or are
Ashamed of their own fear
The bottom line is when they see
The fearless they just sneer

They aren’t inspired to stand up
And show no fear as well
Instead they’d rather use their time
To worry and to dwell

About all things that could go wrong
And all that they may lose
A warrior is not discouraged
By a scratch or bruise

They aren’t discouraged by insults
Or people poking fun
They only have one goal in mind:
To get the mission done

They aren’t afraid of anything
Not even those without
Any fear themselves, instead
They are proud as they shout:

“My brother/sister warrior
Who I hold very dear
My source of inspiration who
I do respect, not fear”

    “My brother/sister warrior
    Who I hold very dear
    My source of inspiration who
    I do respect, not fear”———–Maybe this has been my secret mantra? Remember FDR instructing his nation “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” I have not been an official “soldier” of any nation, but I HAVE been paid because I am known as fearless in certain ways to at least a few others! Moral fearlessness is a rare and valuable commodity in today’s world. I always grow decades younger in an instant when I encounter this type of fearlessness! Thank you more than I say say for this post today!
