Hi guys,long time no see. Hope you guys have been good? May the blessings of the Lord be with you and may He comfort you on every side.

Here  is a poem I wrote  yesterday at work. My pastor would say fear has torment but Fear means:

F – False

E- Evidence

A – Appearing

R  – Real

If its not real, why do I feel this way? Why does it feel so real? Why? I cannot proffer answers,but I can tell you how I feel and we can reason together. Enjoy


I am scared,

Scared of something I do not know,

 I’m scared,

Scared of something I cannot describe,

I’m scared,

Scared of something that haunts me in my sleep,

One that submerges me in fear until I am neck deep,

Threatening to snatch the life out of me,

And be the eventual death of me,

I feel it,

I feel it,

I feel the emptiness that resides deep down in my soul,

Deep and bottomless and as black as coal,

Enthroning itself over my feeble heart,

Reigning and ruling without tact.

So I cried,

Hoping to cry my fears and worries away,

And cried,

Wishing  that I fade, and eventually  fade away,

As I cried,

See the tears come pouring like rivers of waters,

And I cried,

Until my eyes became without water,

So I ran,

Ran as fast as my legs could me, carry,

And ran,

Until my legs were numb and heavy,


Till I became breathless and was gasping for air,

And ran,

Till I felt faint and as light as a strand of hair.

Then,I wished,

Wished I could fly,

Fly past and above the sky,


Till I have touched every mountain high,


Till I am far from earth and the heavens draw nigh,


Until my wings are lost or broken,


Until there’s no way back from heaven,


Until I realize that fear is a lie,

One that won’t stop, until the day I die.


Thanks for reading.

  1. Awwwn. I can relate. Until this morning when I came across the hymn – what a friend we hve in Jesus – about taking it all to the Lord in prayer.

    Lovely poem. Is it okay if I say welcome back? Or will you leave us ‘high and dry again’?
