Ooops, I do not like the repeat of word, "afraid" so changed it to:

When I am afraid
I hold onto hope
Because hope
Is not frightened by fear

Thanks.....and the above saying is so true for me....for the longest time, if there could be just one word that is "my" word, my go to word, the one thing that keeps me going, it's hope. It always will be.

Hey, ddnos,

Consider this ~ The opposite of hate is not love. The opposite of love is not hate.

The opposite of love is fear. The next time you are afwaid, apply generous quantities of love to people next to you. Its a sure cure for you. And it won't hurt them either.

Your Goat, Ibex.
