To My Granddaughters- FEAR NOT
If ever you are anxious,
Or frozen stiff with fear,
Remember that you have a brain,
Reason makes things clear.
There’s not a perfect answer.
You don’t need all the facts.
But using what God gave you
Uncomplicates most acts.
Think of worst scenarios.
Count your blessings too.
And manage your reaction
To weigh what’s best for you.
You have the tools to function,
Safety’s not assured.
Look inward for your power.
Trust Truth not what you’ve ‘heard’.
Success looks not like winning.
Struggles aren’t assigned.
Instincts solve no problems
Lest they’re filtered through your mind.
Your courage and your confidence,
Most prized tenacious gear,
Allows no one to shame you.
Relinquish not to fear.

Wise counsel for all of us, Susan, and beautifully spoken! For some reason I could “hear” this in my head like oral poetry which speaks to your talent for meter and rhyme.
P.S. Love that beautiful picture of happiness!
Thank-you! The oldest just turned sixteen. I love that photo too! ❤
Your comment made me smile. I appreciate it and realize that we (writers) are most fluid when we speak from the heart.
Peace and ❤
