A poem: Fear

Fear,

Such a small word with a HUGE impact

It was fear that influenced my choices

It was fear that made me steal to feed what I felt was saving me from myself

Being afraid to face who you are because you don't even know who you are

Oh, what a slippery slope you are traveling on girl!

On the verge of plummeting into darkness

Scared of tomorrow yet ready for it to end

Longing for the date of your expiration

What kind of life are you living girl?

Hurting others intentionally and unintentionally

Took me 12 years to truly realize can't no pill heal what God is ordained to heal

I've only damaged myself more going my own way.

Choosing drugs instead of getting on my knees to pray.

Not being consistent and practicing my faith

But Lord, You've been merciful on a girl like me.

Could've crashed headfirst while high traveling on the wrong side of the street.

In just an instant my soul could've been lost.

But You said not yet for my Son has died on the cross.

Fear,

Such a small word with a HUGE impact

But with God the fear shall cease

I know that to be a fact!


"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)
