Fear

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


Fear is a four letter word...
A little word but huge meaning...
Fear is so many different things...
To so many different people...
I don't know how Webster decided...
Decided on an explanation...

Some fears control our lives...
There are many people who
Fear, fear itself...
Some people have special fears...
Fear of heights is common...
Fear of falling is common...
Fear of snakes is my fear...

Many fears are good...
Fear of fire keeps you safe...
Fear of wild animals is a good one...
Like most things fear has 2 sides...

From the time we are small...
We are learning what to fear...
Each of us is different...
At first we fear what we are told...
Told to fear...
As we grow we learn more...
More about fear...

In 2020 people tell us to fear...
If we are not careful we will fear...
Fear most things...
Television personalities pump fear...
Fear this and fear that...

Fear can be disabling if it is dishonest...
We can all be controlled by fears...
Many people who know how to use it...
Use it to control their enemies...

As we get older and learn...
We hope that we will have less...
Less to fear...
But in 2020 there is so much talk...
Talk about fear...

The truth about things usually
helps remove fear...
But in 2020 finding the truth is
about as hard as knowing...
Knowing what to really fear...

In 2020 finding fear is easy...
Truth seems to be hiding...
Hiding in bushes and under rocks...
But we are smart and we will...
We will find the answers...
We will conquer the fear...
We are Americans and We don't give up...

More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and she now makes her home in Aiken, S.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
