Striving for harmony and tranquility in our lives.
Breaking Free Of Fear

Day after day, it frequently appears as if we are climbing stairs
in our lives that seemingly lead to nowhere,
escalating us only to more and more terrorizing
escapades of agony and fear.

Day after day, as we stride to move on our way, it often
seems as though we are struck on a runaway
escalator without a stop control button, that we could push
to descend us back down to safe ground.

Day after day, in trying to reach our goals, which may
appear to be unattainable, like scaling mountains
with unreachable summits, fear engulfs our souls
leading to more frustration and woes.

Day after day, as we try to survive in a life that is full of unwelcome
surprises, like circling through revolving doors, causing more
and more woes, that only loop us in and out of agonizing bouts of depression,
laden with periods of self-pity, misery, and insurmountable doubt.

Day after day, we journey down life's many paths, swishing along
like busy bees making honey, in search of love, happiness and success.
We often forget to look for paths that, perchance could lead us farther away
from fear, to a more peaceful and happy life, filled with tranquility and harmony.
