The Fearless

A poem by Jim Deeds

[New City Magazine – March 2021, page 23]

The fear of things
Not yet come
And that never will be
Maybe
Probably

The great liar
Lies in its lair
Laying and lying
Loving lack lustre
Lives lost

Trust: the friend
Fighting for you
Fighting and forming
Forever affirming
Confirming, fulfilment

Nose to the wind now
Scent out the path
Unknown, nothing to fear
All is new, now
This is it: live

From the book Soul Seasons by Jim Deeds. Published by New City (2021)
