Scared Poems

Scared poems that delve into emotions of fear, doubt, dread, panic and apprehension surfacing the deep dark secrets of the poet’s mind. There are times when fear is stifled in the daily rut of things, but when it comes out through the medium of poetry it becomes a tragic celebration of all the things one fears. If the first step to get over your fears is to accept them, what better than poetry could do this? This collection of scared poems will remind you of the times when fear gripped you and how you got over it. Each one of us carries a part within that is scared, a part less exposed to circumstances because it is sensitive and poetry is a soothing balm to this part of being. These poems are about all such scared moments and held up fears that have been a part of the poet’s life. May they give you courage and help you deal with things you are scared of.
