Simultaneous Sights and Sounds

Sunset

Last night

The sun painted

The western sky orange red,

While fingers plucked harp strings

Inside.

Soothing sounds enveloped my ears,

Drowning out the darkness

Of reality

Outside.

A home

Just blocks away,

While my ears heard sweet words,

Others were being torn apart

Inside,

As the blackness of a cold heart,

Unleased its bitterness,

Drowning a soul

In tears.

Job’s Question

FEAR

Afraid?

What is “the thing”?

What is the “that” in you

Which is so big it causes such

Great Fear?

Wonder if someday it suddenly

Becomes real and comes?

What will you do?

Panic?

Or Pray?

What will you do?

Will you fight or just freeze?

Will you crumble in trepidation?

I know

What i would do because it’s come.

And I am trusting God

To remove it

From me.
