A Case of The Fears

Chicken Soup is good for a cold

Sleep is good for the Flu

When I get a case of the Fears

What is a person to do?

It is not bacteria

Although it can eat away my soul

It is not a virus

Yet, it can keep me from feeling whole

I know what will do the trick,

What will put me back on top,

A great big bowl of Ice Cream

Will really hit the spot

That was great and now I am done

One bowl just won't do

If one is good, then more is great

And now I have eaten two.

Bowls three, four, five and six

Came and then they went

I think my case of the fears are fixed

Look at how my time was spent

I am getting sleepy

It is time to go to bed

My fears are no longer in my stomach

Now they are in my head

I close my eyes and I can see

The Fears I want to kill

I will do, whatever it takes

To keep the monsters still.

When I rise to greet the day

My fears are rising too

I know I need a friend right now

Whatever will I do?

I walk into the kitchen

And Open the freezer door

I stop myself and think real hard

I have been here once before.

I grab a seat in my comfy chair

And reach over for the phone

What will I say, if you are there?

I can hear a dial tone.

I enter all your numbers

You answer right away

You sit and listen, as I speak

You said I would be ok.

We say good-bye and I start my day

I knew I had been wrong

I start to read and then to pray

To keep me feeling strong.

If you are like me then you will see

That the fears, they come and go

Be the person you were meant to be

Let your feelings show.
