FEAR ITSELF

Unkown and future forces
Often erupt into fear, 
Trepidation, and anxiety.

Constant attention to parts
Of self involved in reactions;
Attend and offer comfort.

Analyst wondered about 
Inner child's tears and need 
For validation and reassurance.

Next morning, NPR reported
About current Madeline books,
Prompting listing of spunky girls.

New tradition, bedtime reading:
Madeline, Pippi Longstocking,
Eloise, Heidi, and Dahl's Matilda.

All life experiences offer gifts and
Opportunities for expanded
Knowledge of world and self.
