You Can Conquer Doubt and Fear




This poem was written by Margaret Jang


Conquering Doubt and Fear
At times, you may just give up and drown out your sorrow,
forgetting your goal to build a better tomorrow.
What causes you to throw your arms up the air,
and fall into misery or feelings of despair?


What can you do to conquer your doubt and fear?
Well, first take stock and look right in the mirror.
This will show the truth of what you're searching for,
a giant step to change your life forever more.


Conquering doubt and fear is not an easy task,
there are many, many questions you may want to ask.
And positive curiosity is healthy, plus good,
it sparks a keen interest, as it really should.


Conquering doubt and fear takes tremendous strength,
but it's well worth your effort by any arms length.
For courage is not gained in a day or night,
it builds very slowly through greater insight.


So often you forget the important part of self,
losing your identity is usually what is felt.
Becoming so entwined with the opinion of another,
and so afraid to speak, you just hide for cover.


To conquer doubt and fear, know your "self" well,
listen to your heart; your body's but a shell.
Wisdom and truth are gifts with which you're blessed,
honesty is a virtue that needs to be addressed.


For if you can't be true to the integrity of your soul,
conquering doubt and fear is something you won't know.
So move from the shadows and step within the light,
cast your doubt and fear in the darkness of the night.


Feel your pain or sorrow turn into joyful love,
turn away from doubting; just trust in greater love.
And the spirit of your soul will smile in peaceful calm,
'cause conquering doubt and fear, is a healing balm.

Wonderful poem Deb Ann and Hannah. I especially love the part about listening to your heart. Our body often tells us when we are in fear... whether it is our stomach that turns, our heart that races or our muscles that tense up. We can use those signs to remind us to breathe, slow down and really listen to our hearts... our inner knowing.

I am going to share this link with others. It is beautiful.

Keep up the amazing work!
