    off da top, b.

    {“There is nothing to fear but fear itself…”}
    Hmmm.

    I don’t fear the loss of money
    Or material possessions
    Nor do I question
    RIGHT or WRONG
    I live my own RIGHT
    …Play WRONG in all my songs

    BUT I…

    …I fear the taking away
    Of what God gave
    By man slaves of
    Satan

    No matter how temporary.
    (COZ GOD CAN REPLACE IT ALL)

    I fear losing my children
    (in this life)

    I fear death and destruction
    Coz death had no place
    In My Father’s Order
    The slaughter
    Of innocent children
    Being billed as
    Maintaining PEACE
    Maintain Peace
    My peace?
    And I look in the face of yous ones
    Seeking release
    And you say
    Do whatcha gotta do

    No matter how cruel.

    I fear yesterday’s passing
    And tomorrow’s coming
    And next week
    And next year
    And I fear what I can’t see
    Coz what I can’t see may kill me
    NO…
    I don’t fear my death
    I fear the death of those close to me
    My children
    My friends
    Even the enemies of my family tree
    The ones who say…

    Do you fear me?

    I fear that my hands
    my go bad
    i can't write
    dis feelin' is sad
    my fear of loosing
    hope dis really no joke
    i flow in da name of love
    feel what i scribe above
    my fear is scary

    not only that !
    i have this fear
    for a year
    of my child
    is he in smiles
    now he lay miles away
    i fear the dreams
    in my sleep
    a feelin that makes me weak
    i fear
    the black on black crime
    and how my bruthas & sistah's
    dying by the handz of another
    black man i fear dis
    when our hood can't unite in unity
    from these struggles of chains
    not feeding the brain
    what a shame

    i fear pain that stay in my heart
    i search and seek a new start
    i've held dis fear year after year
    trying to keep my mental clear

    I fear not the power of GOD
    I fear not the blessing
    but i fear the life of others
    how they move undercover
    a massive bliss of death
    i don't fear my eternal sleep
    but i fear love that never speak

    fear is scary
    make ya mind worry
    the funny fear is
    i fear this compassion
    no one know
    i fear my love
    when it's not claim
    or when a heart is broken
    i fear things that hurt
    having a fear when things
    don't work
    a fear i hold
    but someday all my fears will
    be total as i check out
    and i shall fear no more ........

    What I fear….


    Fear not of it but conquer the fear itself
    Over power it and live it..
    The strength in you makes you
    Not knowing for some is the fear
    Study your flight and there you will
    Conquer what you need not fear…
    What I fear you ask….
    Not able to share the wisdom I have inside
    My scribes as you call them comes
    From within and as I unfold knowledge to pass on
    to pick up my pen not being able to write
    Looking inside as a war goes on I cant do nothing to stop
    Searching this earth not able to gain knowledge to be more of who I am
    Is some of my fears……

    fear of loving and not being loved in return
    fear of repeating lessons already learned
    fear of protecting the heart until nothing gets in
    fear of commiting the act and then facing the sin

    fears

    My fears? Interesting...

    I fear that love won't love me back,
    or that the essentials needed to live I lack.

    I fear fear,
    Cuz it holds freedom,
    And freedom is my breathe.

    I fear life,
    its ups and its downs,
    cuz the downs smile freely on death.

    I fear to much,
    Leaves me out of touch,
    With who I really became.

    I fear that the success I landed,
    Is lower that what I've aimed.
