Fear Diminishes

“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this fear diminishes.” ~ Rosa Parks

F.E.A.R. – False Evidence Appearing Real.
We are living in a world where worst case scenarios
dominate every newscast, where our lives
stand upside down, in a state of utter confusion.
Searching out a comfortable shoulder to cry on
is forbidden, for we’re told to stay six feet away.
Holding hands, giving hugs, blending in…
verboten! For many the fears have become true,
but even then, the unthinkable having happened,
life goes on. And thankfully for most of us
the fear really is False Evidence Appearing Real.
And If not, when one’s mind is made up,
even this fear diminishes.
