For the Award of Awesomeness October prompt, Lise says: “BOO!”

She wants to see all your poems about your (or someone else’s) FEARS!

Real or imagined; nightmarish or manifest. Whether it’s arachnophobia, social anxiety, ghosts; whether it’s your fear of flying, fear of failing or fear of falling. Fears conquered; fears mastered.

Is it angst, or panic, or dread? And how do you finally get to a state of calm, contentment and confidence? How do you deal with ‘fear’?

We’re getting chills just thinking about it… So send us your best poems about your worst fears!
