“Nothing is terrible except fear itself.” 
Wise words from the past,
Spoken in truth, dread to dissolve.
Languish not in swamp of anxiety,
Mind heavy laden, heart downcast,
What power possessed may resolve!
For what emotion, force so strong,
Could endure fear’s onslaught, remain steadfast
Sanction the mind, inner strength to evolve.
Make your fears the enemy of themselves,
Set course of spirit, new realms explore,
of fear, all sins atoned, now absolve.
 Sir Francis Bacon 1561-1626
