FEAR!!!!!

FEAR!!!!!

(I wrote this to commemorate what was probably my thousandth panic attack in the last year. Anyone else deal with those?)

FEAR!!!!!

I am tired of waiting
For what is not if but when
That feeling comes.....
Knowing the only medication that really works
Is to grab onto something solid
And hang on for dear life
Till it retreats, only to circle
Waiting for the next time my back is turned
To strike again
Oh, the Grim Reaper
Will be sadly disappointed
When he comes to my stoop
Threats of a painful life review
No longer intimidate me
I've been there too many times before
All that is of interest to me now
Is the shirt that I wore
but if I turn his sickly grin to a frown
I will make him smile again
We'll sit down and I will deal
A game of spades
And ask to hear his story
Listening with great intent
As he turns over his endless supply of aces
I will thank him for each and every one
As it is the only game I know
Where to lose is to win
And when we are done
I will lay back with glee and give that buzzard
One last up cast finger
Because I know he may have ruled over me
But he never, in fact, owned me
