Know how to
live within yourself:
there is in your soul
a whole world
of mysterious
and enchanted thoughts;
they will be drowned
by the noise without;
daylight will
drive them away;
listen to their singing
and be silent.

For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me
Somehow I know I'll be strong
For once in my life
I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it hurt me before
For once, I have something
I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore

From "What Was I Scared Of?"
By Dr. Seuss

I was walking in the night
And I saw nothing scary.
For I have never been afraid
Of anything. Not very.

Then I was deep within the woods
When, suddenly, I spied them.
I saw a pair of pale green pants
With nobody inside them!

I wasn't scared. But, yet, I stopped.
What could those pants be there for?
What could a pair of pants at night
Be standing in the air for?

And then they moved! Those empty pants!
They kind of started jumping.
And then my heart, I must admit,
It kind of started thumping.
Self-Created Fear
So I go out. I got out fast.
As fast as I could go, sir.
I wasn't scared. But pants like that
I did not care for. No, sir.

After that, a week went by.
Then one dark night in Grin-itch
(I had to do an errand there
And fetch some Grin-itch spinach)...
Well, I had fetched the spinach.
I was starting back through town
When those pants raced round a corner
And they almost knocked me down!

I lost my Grin-itch spinach
But I didn't even care.
I ran for home! Believe me,
I had really had a scare!

Now, bicycles were never made
For pale green pants to ride 'em,
Especially spooky pale green pants
With nobody inside 'em!

And the NEXT night, I was fishing
For Doubt-trout on Roover River
When those pants came rowing toward me!
Well, I started in to shiver.

And by now I was SO frightened
That, I'll tell you, but I hate to...
I screamed and rowed away and lost
My hook and line and bait, too!

I ran and found a Brickel bush.
I hid myself away.
I got brickels in my britches
But I stayed there anyway.
I stayed all night. The next night, too.
I'd be there still, no doubt,
But I had to do an errand
So, the next night, I went out.

I had to do an errand,
Had to pick a peck of Snide
In a dark and gloomy Snide-field
That was almost nine miles wide.



I said, "I do not fear those pants
With nobody inside them."
I said, and said, and said those words.
I said them. But I lied them.


Then I reached inside a Snide bush
And the next thing that I knew,
I felt my hand touch someone!
And I'll bet that you know who.

And there I was! Caught in the Snide!
And in that dreadful place
Those spooky, empty pants and I
Were standing face to face!

I yelled for help. I screamed. I shrieked.
I howled. I yowled. I cried,
"Oh save me from these pale green pants
With nobody inside!"

But then a strange thing happened
Why, those pants began to cry!
Those pants began to tremble.
They were just as scared as I!

I never heard such whimpering
And I began to see
That I was just as strange to them
As they were strange to me!

I put my arm around their waist
And sat right down beside them.
I calmed them down.
Poor empty pants
With nobody inside them.

And now, we meet quite often,
Those empty pants and I.
And we never shake or tremble.
We both smile
And we say
"Hi!"
This is another of Dr. Seuss' (Theodor Geisel's) stories for children (adults) that teach a very basic life lesson.

We tend to assume that things that which we cannot explain, in a rational sense,
should be feared, and considered a threat.

We create scenarios in our mind in which the unknown is "out to get us", and calculate the possible outcomes of various  "confrontations".

In this story, the outcome reveals that the "threat" is a self-created fear in our own minds. The "threat" is just another creature just looking for a friend in this crazy world.
The one I found
is ME!
