Fear No More

Fear No More, I chose this poem for a very specific reason, fear is a theme often weaved through out literature, music,art,movies and our lives. Fear is gripping and cementing...holding on like the clutches of a dead man. Fear of being rejected, fear of being alone, fear of dying, fear losing-we face Fear every day. Now I have been having(and am still continuing to have) these really horrible dreams where I am...left alone...see people dying...losing my friends and loved ones...and being rejected by the killer. Last night was particularity bad, my parents died in my subconscious, not something you want to see, but I was overwhelmed this morning by this fear that somehow it came true. I never realized,until now, that fear is the driving emotion behind many of our decisions.
Fear No More.
Besides it's a lovely day for Shakespeare--Yes! I like it Shakespeare Saturday!
Who doesn't love "Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble. "- Macbeth
Fear No More
William Shakespeare

Fear no more the heat o' the sun;
Nor the furious winter's rages,
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages;
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney sweepers come to dust.

Fear no more the frown of the great,
Thou art past the tyrant's stroke:
Care no more to clothe and eat;
To thee the reed is as the oak:
The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this, and come to dust.

Fear no more the lightning-flash,
Nor the all-dread thunder-stone;
Fear not slander, censure rash;
Thou hast finished joy and moan;
All lovers young, all lovers must
Consign to thee, and come to dust.

No exorciser harm thee!
Nor no witchcraft charm thee!
Ghost unlaid forbear thee!
Nothing ill come near thee!
Quiet consummation have;
And renowned be thy grave!
