Writing the Background Knowledge Maya Angelou explained the concept of fear best, in her poem, Life Doesnt Frighten Me At All. The speaker of the poem was unafraid, confident, and willing to face the challenges before them. Like the speaker of the poem, people do not have to fear their fears, but be confident that they can overcome.

will gain by facing them.

The speaker of the poem was confident and willing to face the challenging fears before them. Like the speaker of

the poem, people do not have to fear their fears, but be confident that they can overcome. Fear is not a contributing factor to what defines us, because we are defined by the strength and courage it takes to overcome our fears.
