Fear is a bully,
It kicks you when you're down
It teases you,
Laughs at you,
Helps you up,
And pushes you back on the ground.
Fear is a scar,
A hard and painful thing to dispose of
A memory that can't be forgotten
It leaves a permanent mark on your body.
Fear is clothing,
Once you wear it,
You can't return it.
Fear is a friend,
It warns you,
it tells you, "Don't do this"
But makes you weak again.
Fear is a drug,
It is addictive to some people,
To do things for the thrill,
And not the outcome later.
Fear is a person, 
Waiting at your front door,
To scare you,
To remind you,
of things that have happened before.
Fear is everywhere,
It is inside you, 
Hiding in your mind.

Fear is an annoying teacher.
Learn from it.

Janna, I thought that would be a nice way to wrap it all up...if I have learned anything from fear, it is that you can overcome it, if you learn how it works.

Jerry, I have been told that a lot..but what I have found is that, if you have grown up at an early age, you see things quicker than adults.
Thanks for reading:)

"Fear is an annoying teacher. Learn from it." How true.

You have learned something early in your life that most people take many decades of floundering to "get."
