about

In college, I read the trilogy Dune by Frank Herbert. In the first book, the main character Paul Atriedes, is taught a mantra in his training

"I must not fear
Fear is the mind-killer
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration
I will face my fear 
I will permit it to pass over me and through me
And when it has gone past I will turn my inner-eye to see its path
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing
Only I will remain"

This mantra helped me overcome my fears, including those who attempted to control me through my fears. I hope to do the Frank HErbert writing honor by this song.

lyrics

Fear Is The Little Mindkiller
F# - 244322; F - 133211; Adim - xo121x; A- xo222o;
Pattern 1243

[F#] I will not give in to [F] fear
Fear is the little [Adim] mindkiller
[F#] Fear only wishes to control and  [F] cripple me
From success under the thumb of its [A] authority

[F#] I will face my fear and let it pass over me and through [F] me
Fear is the little [Adim] mindkiller
[F#] Fear wants to hold on to its [F] grip on me
Strangling until I can’t [A] move or breathe

[F#] I will not give in to [F] fear
Fear is the little [Adim] mindkiller
[G] I will turn to see that [A] fear is just a shadow stripping me of [B] who i can be
[C] A virus that needs a host to spread its [D] disease

[F#] I will not give in to [F] fear
Fear is the little [A] mindkiller
