Knock it down

Do you know what you will miss
If you allow fear
To take control of you?
Fear is no good;
It does not help;
Don’t give in to it;
Give it no chance
To prevail on you;
If it shows its ugly head,
Knock it down;
Make sure you hit hard;
Don’t take it lightly;
Shatter it, if you can;
It’s mischievous;
Always looking for a victim
To devour;
It doesn’t come with force;
But like rain water
It slips in gently without
A sound;
Though its grip is hard;
And it never wants
To let you go.
