on the couch

were we to name our fears they would not flee
what's inside is not banished by mere thought
it's not as if these terrors have been caught
we get them all our lives plain and for free
those things we have which let us live or be
are not just matters of would be or ought
achievements are worth far more than nought
we flow through life and come at last to sea
instead of fear we might exalt each life
each way we seek to make the world our own
or build a structure that does more than seem
what we have got arrives in place of strife
takes us from the unmapped into the known
allowing us to remember every dream
