Question Marks

How will I know

When the time is right

To leave or go?

How will I know

To say yes or no,

To run or to fight?

How will I know,

When the time is right?

Prompt: “How Will I Know”

Posted in June 2018, Rhyme

Facing Fear

Overcoming fear, man jumping over a rock of fear

For many a year

I lived with my greatest fear.

Controlled by his power,

I used to cower

At the thought of leaving him.

But as my eyes became dim,

I had to make a choice

To listen to him, or another’s voice

Who was telling me

From this fear I had to flee.

So as God held my hand,

I made a stand!

I faced that fear, told it to go.

It stared at me, and it said “NO!”

Knees shaking, I dug in my feet,

I was determined it to defeat!

I stood my ground,

New strength I found,

To conquer fear’s intimidating frown,

And make it shrink,and back down.

And then with God’s power I overcame,

I crushed that fear in Jesus’ Name!

What will you be today?

A beautiful bird

Singing a cheerful song,

Or a negative voice

That tears down others hopes?

What will you be today?

A beautiful flower

Sharing its sweet fragrance,

Or a cold bitter brook

Drowning in past regrets?

What will you be today?

A heart filled with love

Spreading joy to everyone,

Or just an empty shell

Casting shadows of doubt?

What will you be today?

The choice is yours alone.

You can change the world

Or let the world change you.

Point of View

Window

Plans are often made

From the inside looking out

Or from the outside

As someone’s looking in

What is it you see?

Two different perspectives

Are presented

In a vista from within

Or an angle from without
