Fear is not real

This clip below comes from the not so good movie After Earth with Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith. But there’s one line from this movie that I love and think is so true. Best part of the movie and probably better than the whole movie itself. I didn’t think the movie was shit but it really isn’t good. Anyway, I think everyone should listen to these words.

Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.

Poem: A Sudden Jewel

03/03/2015 Leave a comment

“A Sudden Jewel”

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming.

Fear of hope, fear of not being able to cope. Dream or nightmare, it is never all fair.

A sparkle in the distance, behind a wall, on the other side of a frozen lake, on the opposite roof top. Stop, I crave discovery. Punch the wall, tip-toe the ice, cast the rope. Impossible to again resist the hope.

Fear, worry, would the light please hurry?

Half way, a diamond is spotted, a mirage or a treasure, the pressure, why measure? It is not a pleasure, yet.

Keeping the balance, holding it in, if I fall I can’t fly nor swim.

A long time becomes short, I know I am not good at this sport. Almost there, I must prepare.

What if… one sudden jewel of wonder can paint a new world of a satisfying heart plunder.
