About the Poem

Everybody fears something. You might fear something as simple as a bee sting or something as complicated as a car crash. I have one fear that I truly, truly dread. One fear that will simply tear me apart, and that is losing the ones that I love, especially that one person who makes your life complete.

I love this poem! it is soo amazingg. love it
Anne WOW this one hit home i lost my wife after 17 years and if i ever dedicated a poem to her this would be it i am pretty much fearless but after my wife died fear has shown its face to me.
when i first read this poem my first reaction made me think that it was rubbish and too short, but then my curiosity lead me to scroll down and see what people other than me thought about it. and it just goes to show that small is big and even though it only constist of so small words it means so much to the ones that have lost someone or need to think of what they have fear of in themselves.
wow! the poem inspired my heart. beautiful layout

I am not afraid of death,
I am not afraid of dying.

I am not afraid of heartbreaks,
I am not afraid of crying.

I am not afraid of the future,
I am not afraid of tomorrow.

I am not afraid of sadness,

The only thing I fear ever coming true,
Is living this fearless life, without you.

"Fear" is a great poem. It hit me on a level that I didn't even know I had. Thanks.
this poem touched me so much, i can read it over and over again!
I think it was very well written. I love how it describes what you do not fear, because in life those are some of things that really hurt us. Sorrow, and death are all very strong things. I'm only 13 so I don't really have much experiance to go on other then I am also a writer. The poem is wonderful and I love the rhyming. Over all the emotions it conveys are beautiful and pure. You get a very strong message across and it can be very significant when it is thought over carfully. I would love to see more poetry like this, it isn't to long and drawn out but the emotion is clearly represnted and you can feel it. I really like this poem, it may not be the best poem ever but I think it's right up there with emotional poetry. The emotions make you feel them but not so strongly as to sway your own emotion. This is a beautifully written poem, I like it very much.
i think that this poem is really good,cuz i ecplanes alot,and i am the same way as this poem i am not afraid of anythin but i am a friad of losing someone that i love over somthing stupid. thanks for your listing to me and how i feel

very nice poem very true
I really like this poem because this is how i feel. i end up reading half a poem and it sounds just like what i feel but then it talks about holding hands and kissing. and thats something i never done with this guy i love. he doesn't love me. he doesn't know i love him. but i still go on because life and love will take its course.
nice poem.

Powerful and to the point
Very sweet. I cried.
