Hey folks! Here’s a little poem inspired my something my oldest daughter said to me last week about “tasting the fear”. Hope you enjoy the read! πŸ™πŸ€žπŸ˜πŸ“–


Did you taste the fear my love?
Have you savoured life’s uncertainty?
Sank your teeth deep into what frightens you most?!
Or sat down to dinner with all your demons & ghosts?
Broke bread with them
Will you devour your anxiety
Consume it completely
Instead of letting it consume you
Digest on anxiety’s remains
Chew on it with the disdain
It deserves.
Then spit it out
It has no place in your diet
For a fulfilled life
It’ll only leave you
Fat & bloated with regrets
Arteries blocked with distress
Taste the fear
Don’t let it taste you
Otherwise it’ll get a flavour
For your fearfullness
And feast on it regularly.
Don’t be afraid
But if you are
Eat it anyways
Swallow it whole.

    1. Thanks very much Muri! 😊😁 Funny thing is that is was her who asked me the question:”Daddy when you were little did you taste the fear? Really got me thinking about fear and our attitude towards it and this is what I came up with. πŸ‘


  1. I quite like the advice of sitting down for dinner with all our demons and ghosts. Get to know them better. Most are probably only half as scary as we think… Tasting the fear… probably something we should do far more often! Thanks for sharing this, Ken. Your daughter seems to be quite a philosopher. She’s certainly asking interesting questions!!!

    1. Yeh, I thought that idea was intriguing too Britta. Things aren’t half as scary once you sit down and talk about and to them. You’re very welcome, delighted you enjoyed it! πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ˜Š Oh, she’s quite the wise one so she is Britta. A sponge, soaks everything in and is so observant. 😁
