Dancing With Fear

Inspired by Gangaji's words, "...so usual and so tragic that to avoid a broken heart, people live in a state of broken heartedness..." this poem was worded.


Dance With Fear
Face and embrace the fear. 
Hold her tight.
Hold her near.
Dance with her.
In trembling body, I see
That fear is dancing in step with me.
She serves me well.
Survived and here to tell.
That I can let my heart break open.
Closed shut is living hell.
