Dispelling Fears

A new year comes near, yet how much will change?
Much courage needed for continuance 
When difficulties come, when life feels strange.
One need not go on with exuberance, 
Just give another try, another chance.
May higher hopes the lower fears dispel,
To save a growing soul from stagnant hell. 

For FOWC: Dispel. Although the last word of this Chaucerian stanza is “hell,” I think I’ve succeeded in writing a new poem that is not too much of a downer. 🙂
