  • FEAR – False Expectations Appearing Real

    • The whole world is in panic
      The whole world is in fear!
      They don’t know what the truth is
      But they are zapped with what they hear

      A virus has attacked us!
      It is going to wipe out the world!
      It is going to kill us all…
      Through the media, we are told

      Is it a danger, is it real?
      Or is this just a myth?
      As long as we live in fear
      We will never realize the truth

      Of course, it has killed thousands
      And it’s mainly the old
      The young will mostly get away
      With a fever, cough and cold

      The Coronavirus is a champion
      It seems to have a tactic
      Though many it appears to infect
      But for some, it is asymptomatic

      Therefore, we don’t know the numbers
      Who are actually killed by the virus
      There are many with heart and lung disease
      Are they dying because of this?

      The whole world is in panic
      They think of COVID they will die
      They have locked themselves in their houses
      Unable to enjoy the sky

      Of course, we must take precautions
      And stay away from one with a cough
      But to shut down the entire world
      That is way off!

      Fear is the cause of this panic
      It is making a mountain of a molehill
      Far more than the Coronavirus
      It is Fear that will kill

      Fear is False Expectations Appearing Real
      The mind creates this thought
      But once paralyzed by this panic
      In anxiety we are caught

      Why are we scared, why do we fear?
      Why are humans given this gift?
      God gave us this instinct for a reason
      From real dangers, so we can drift

      There are many types of fears
      Some even fear a loud sound
      Some fear to go up in the sky
      Some a lizard on the ground!

      Fear often grows into a phobia
      An irrational fear of something
      Dentophobia is a fear of the dentist
      And claustrophobia, a crowd of anything

      Some have zoophobia – fear of animals
      Some arachnophobia – fear of spiders
      With aerophobia, there is fear of flying
      And cyberphobia – fear of computers

      Finally, the question that matters most
      Is fear actually real?
      Fear is not a danger, fear doesn’t kill
      It’s just an Expectation that Appears Real

      But when fear attacks us
      And fills our body and mind
      The rascal makes us suffer
      And makes our life a grind

      Fear is not a danger
      There is a difference in these two
      A danger can attack us
      But fear just makes us feel blue

      The consequence of fear is tremendous
      It can bring our life to a halt
      It can stop our intellect from thinking
      By just finding fault

      What is the cause of fear?
      This killer is caused by our mind
      It makes us see what is not
      In anxiety, makes us blind

      But there is a way to overcome it
      With courage and with hope
      We must wipe out every thought of worry
      Then with stress and panic we will cope

      But the first step is to wipe out
      Ignorance from the mind
      To differentiate the mind from the intellect
      Both are of a different kind

      The intellect can discriminate
      It can realize the truth
      We must ask questions and investigate
      Till we get to the bottom of the root

      It is important to flip our life over
      From NEP flip to PEP
      From negative emotions to positive emotions
      From poison to power, step by step

      After all, life is a drama
      On the earth stage, it’s just a show
      We are all actors in this theatre
      We come, but we must go

      Nobody can escape death
      Life is in somebody else’s hand
      There is a power we can’t comprehend
      That created the sky and land

      Because we fear we will die
      We live with such panic
      We get scared of a virus
      That’s truly tragic!

      Fear can lock us in prison
      Fear can shut life’s door
      Fear can frighten us to no end
      Drilling into our core

      The biggest Fear is that of death
      Loss of all that is known
      And then a greater Fear still
      What is beyond death, unknown

      But Fear will make us suffer
      Fear will make us sad
      We must learn to overcome it
      If again we want to be glad

      There is a way to overcome
      The ignorance caused by Fear
      It happens with Realization of the Truth
      Not going by what we hear

      We must ask and investigate
      How real is our Fear
      Is it actually a danger
      That’s coming very near?

      Fear is an illusion
      But is powerful and can kill
      It can paralyze our entire life
      And stop us from doing our will

      Today, fear more than ever before
      Has made the world come to a stop
      In panic, stress, and anxiety
      Forced people to shut their shop

      Of course, the virus will kill a few
      But all of us eventually must die
      If not because of this virus
      Something else will send us to the sky

      So why be in panic of the virus?
      We must realize the cause is Fear
      False Expectations Appearing Real
      Is truly causing us dear

      The economic crisis that is being caused
      Is far greater than the virus
      But Fear is making us blind to the truth
      And going in the wrong direction, in stress

      Fear is making us blind
      We can’t see the truth that is plain,
      It’s projecting illusions that are fake
      And will cause the world to be slain

      Its time to realize what Fear is doing
      And kill it before it kills us
      The virus will come, and the virus will go
      But Fear must not destroy us

      If we remain ignorant of our ignorance
      And live with Fear and stress
      Every such virus that comes in life
      Will make our life a mess
