What Should I Fear.

I used to live in perpetual fear of losing things I have,
or never having things I hoped to acquire.
What if I lose my job?(before I retire)
What if I lose my love ones?
What if I never get the bigger house that I have always dream of?
What if I lose some more weight and unattractive?
And what if I even lose my hair?
What if I never fought hard enough in the operating theatres?
What if I get old and frail and have nothing to offer those around me?

But in my real life experiences,
Life teaches those who are willing to listen ,
and now I know.

If I lose my hair (vanity comes in here)
there are such things call WIGS.....all length and colours.
Isn't that wonderful?
Most of all I will be grateful that my head can still stilmulate ideas,
if not follicles.

A house does not always make a person happy.
The unhappy heart will not find contentment in a bigger house.
The heart that is merry and free, however,
will make any home a happy one.


If I spend more time developing my emotional,
mental and spiritual dimensions,
rather than focusing solely on my physical self,
I will be more attractive with each passing day.

If I cannot work for wages, I will work for the Universe;
the benefits package is unmatched.

If I am too sick to to teach my kids to throw a curve ball,
I will teach them to handle the curves thrown by life,
and this shall serve them better.


And if aging robs my strength, mental alertness and physical stamina,
I will offer those around me the strength of my convictions,
the depth of my love and the spirit of a soul that has been
carefully shaped by hard edges of a long life experiences.

No matter what losses or broken dreams may lie in my destiny,
I will meet each challenge with dignity and resolve.


For the Universe has given me many gifts, and for each one that I may lose,
I will find ten more that I never would have cultivated were the
course of my life to always run smoothly with great strength.

And so, when I can no longer dance, I will sing joyfully;
when I haven't got the strength to sing,
I will then put my CD player into good use,
listen intently and shout with my heart;
and when my bright light approches,
I will pray silently until I cannot pray anymore.


Then it will be time for me to go Home,.
And what then should I FEAR?


*Nothing in life is to be feared. It is to be understood*


@@@Dedicated to our cousin brother who is fighting terminal cancer,
for being with him and his family through this period of time have
enlightened me further and how we should live our life@@@

no situation is stronger then a heart that dares to love

and yea american or any other currency can't buy happyness

as happyness isn't something you buy or can posess

happyness is that butterfly that flies away when you desperately chase it with a net

but when you sit still and in peace, the butterfly of happyness comes to sit on your hand

fear to lose something is just being reluctant to changes and dear blackcoffee God has no real interest in currency and money if it is used for greedfull purposes :)

This poem "What Should I Fear" was clearly taken from the poem of the same name by David L. Weatherford. It can be seen on his website at www.davidlweatherford.com
That really should be acknowledged.
