POEMS: “Rise Above The Fear” by Trina Graves


Lilac-breasted Roller in flight

Rise Above The Fear


Fear always stalks
Seeking to find a way
To take hold and enter
Our psyche every day

Doubts and insecurities
Riddle in our mind
Clogging up our energy
Then negativity we find

Blinkered in our sight
Seeming darkness all around
It’s easy to sink deeper
Unless a Light is found

Fear is so contagious
It spreads so easily
When fed by the media
It explodes exponentially

Without Light it festers
Causing endless stress
Our bodies are affected
The immune system works less

Hindered by the adrenaline
Stress will continually produce
Body processes are limited
Until the stress we reduce

Feeding the fear often
In a myriad of ways
Speaking, listening, writing
In our actions it replays

Panic may set in
Causing selfish acts
Too focused on the fear
To clearly see the facts


Rise Above The Fear
Don’t let it find a way
To take hold and enter
Your psyche any day

Rise Above The Fear
With compassion on your mind
Flowing through your energy
Positivity you’ll always find

Rise Above The Fear
For Light is all around
It’s easy to raise higher
When the Light you’ve found

Rise Above The Fear
Spread your Love easily
Feeding your social media
Love heals exponentially

Rise Above The Fear
Eliminate any stress
A stronger immune system
Will make you worry less

Rise Above The Fear
Harmony you’ll produce
In body, mind and Spirit
Negativity will reduce

Rise Above The Fear
In a myriad of ways
Speaking, listening, writing
In your actions it replays

Compassion will set in
Causing Loving acts
Always focused on the joy
You can clearly see the facts

    Thank you for sharing Amira. ❤
    Just a note for anyone interested… This was written with the two parts side by side so that it could be read in two different ways, but I was unable to do the layout in that format. There is a picture of the poem set in this way on my blog.
    Love, Light & Blessings ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. I agree with you Linda… The worst thing for our immune systems is to be exposed to 24/7 fear related news, while people are cooped inside… increasing anxiety, stress, cortisol levels and fear.
      The best thing for us is to remain at peace, enjoying some fresh air and sunshine when possible, and eating healthy and nutritious meals. To remain inspired, we can read inspirational books, poems, spiritually uplifting materials, listen to music, pray, meditate and practice relaxation. Any time spent in Nature accomplishes so much of that!
