    If Fear had metal fingers,

    Then mine would be a vise

    To squeeze and clamp

    My heart and stamp

    Pure terror in my eyes.

     

    If Fear worked as a wringer,

    Then mine would wring me dry

    Of strength and hope

    And means to cope

    With Life’s each How and Why.

     

    But Fear does not hold strings here.

    Despite its desperate plans

    To strike me numb,

    I’ll overcome.

    I’m guided by His Hands.

    Wow, Brocha! You have such a way with words!

    I loved how you set it up – the rhythm, the way it flowed, and the words you use are so perfect. Especially loved the turnaround in the end!
