“Fear vs. Failure”

They both can steal hope and stunt growth,

This is something that I want you to know.

So take a mental and a physical note,

Because either one can cause a negative slope.

Fear gets in your ear and tells you, you can’t,

While failure can and will weaken a man.

Both can cause one to falter and stop one from whoaing the nation,

Unless you learn to use your fears and failures as motivation.

Overcoming fear and gaining confidence,

Your failure will excel you and make you prominent.

Winning in the beginning can help one to do well,

But you can’t be afraid to fail.

With time when you fail your mind will find clearance,

As your mistakes will become a learning experience.

Fear is a spear, and to fail is a nail, I suggest you take heed,

If you are afraid to try, then how can you ever succeed?
