dc.description.abstractIn retrospect, one of the most appealing aspects of childhood is the excitement found in each new day. To a curious child every experience is new to explore and examine. However, this wonderland does not come without its price. For many children, along with excitement and thrill come anxiety and f ear of the unknown. In beginning this project, I found it helpful to reflect back on my own childhood as a reference. I was amazed when I remembered how much time I spent being afraid. My first impulse was to discount my memory as being faulty or to regard my childhood fears as being a result of my own personal insecurities. But when I shared my thoughts with others, I realized that a large number of people, even though they claim to have had what is considered to be a happy and well adjusted childhood, spent many of their childhood years being afraid. Why is it that for so many people, the time of their life which is thought to be the most wonderful is spent in fear? It was this Question that led me to write a collection of poetry which deals mostly with childhood fears.en_US
