Fear can be a tranquilizer
or an energizer.
But it is NOT a healthy mind's equalizer.
Fear can bring passivity
so choose wisely.
A quiet mouth leaves room for assessment;
a great investment
to think before responding yet
So you're truly understanding it.
But do not quell your discoveries
as it would be a tragedy
to walk away silently
glancing past your shoulder spitefully.
