Today I Met Fear Face-to-Face
Today I met fear face to face.
Well, it was actually Facebook to Facebook.
Her name was Ms Fear.
She saw my book about fear.
I titled it Fearless because
We all want less fear in our lives, right?
No one wants more of fear
Unless it’s a different kind of fear.
Great to meet you hear, she wrote.
Was that a typo? I wondered.
Or, was she feeling poetic,
Wanting her words to rhyme?
I see you’ve got a book call Fearless, she replied.
I love it! She praised.
My programme is called —
Fearful to Fearless, she said.
How amazing, I responded.
And then I did the unthinkable.
I asked the big question,
the one I now wish I hadn’t asked.
Is Fear a trade name or your real name?
I am still waiting for a reply.
I fear I may have offended her.
But then again, maybe not.
Today I met Fear, Ms Fear — Facebook-to-Facebook.
