A Reception for Tremor

“Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.” ~ Japanese Proverb

Recently I had a conversation with a friend that seemed to have a lot on their mind. I explained that thoughts are figments of your experience, desires, dreams, and beliefs. It is something beyond your control. However, you can choose which ones you focus on and act upon.

Each day we are in a constant battle between paying attention to doubts and fears, that is, worrying. And on the opposite spectrum is the voice that pushes you, that reminds you of how far you’ve come. We all experience this and there is nothing wrong with you. It’s just something that you should be aware of.


This piece describes the voice that makes me crazy. It is the lower self that discourages you, creates a bully and makes you see past your blessings. Snap your fingers if you can relate!


She haunts me

Crippling my every thought

Making me feel



Less than I am

Striving to become

Mediocre of my being

Scoffing every step


Mocking my dirty hands

Soiled in this essence of work

Betrayed by time

As I await my harvest


She caters to my fears

And plucks out any sign of courage

Consecrating my doubts

To dress it up in beauty


Brushing its hair

Preparing a meal

In vanity

Waiting for my end


To crumble

To shatter

When the burdens

Feel too heavy to carry


She taunts my every desire

Of living

Fulfilling the thoughts

That I’ll never be enough
