I will not chase the stars away
For fear of growing young,
I will not pack away my joy
For fear of getting strong.
I will not bid the sun farewell
For fear of getting warm,
I will not shun time’s passing moments
For fear of each new morn.
I will not withdraw my love for life
For fear of getting hurt,
I will not empty myself of graciousness
For fear of scoundrels who throw dirt.
I will not turn and walk away
For fear of standing on my own,
I will not raise my fist, strike out in pain
For fear no solace will be shown.
I will not cease entertaining angels
For fear of taking on their scent,
I will not turn my back on justice
For fear it will cost me more than what I give up for lent.
I will not paint over life’s rainbows
For fear of promises not being kept,
I will not cling onto a mere legend
For fear the real truth cannot be met.
I will not scorn others colour, creed
For fear that it’s different from my own,
I will not sell of all my dreams
For fear of dreaming them alone.
I will not turn away a stranger
For fear of sharing the little that I possess,
I will not cease to show compassion
For fear it does not heal, redress.
I will not justify my own-self
For fear of your lies ringing true,
I will not cuss the gift, today
For fear of not fitting in with you.
I will not give up on life’s true beauty
For fear of dancing in the rain,
I will not give up on grace and wonder
For fear of hatred, fear pain.
I will not seek out creams and potions
For fear of getting old,
I will not hold onto my shoes
For fear of my own feet getting cold.
I will not laugh in the face of purpose
For fear of my God given call,
I will not wilfully hurt another
For fear of them having it all.
I will not mock another’s journey
For fear that their grass is greener than mine,
I will not turn my back on duty
For fear I’ll step onto a mine.
I will not drink myself into a stupor
For fear of the truth so plain to see,
I will not sell my soul to Satan
For fear that Christ’s love does not come free.
I will not live in darkness
For fear of living in the light,
I will not just stay silent
For fear of fighting the good fight.
I will not fear the road before me
For fear of what I’m sure to find,
I will not live without my heart
For fear it will seek to rule my mind.
I will not chase the stars away
I will not bid the sun farewell,
I will not believe it is impossible
For my life’s story to turn out well…
I will not give up on good, on miracles
I will not lack in courage, I’ll hold God’s word dear,
I will not live my life without His passion
I will be strong and have No Fear!
