Fear’s Shadow

Shadow, poetry,
Image and poetry created by Leona J. Atkinson

It came creeping

In the dark night of my soul

Fear over shadowed

Covering like a thick fog

I lay paralized

Frozen in its doubt and dread

Until a shaft of hope

Broke through the darkness bringing

Strenght to rise and overcome

“When you face fear it evaporates. Shadows cannot stand light. —LeAura Alderson

This quote by LeAura is very true.

And this poem I wrote today is written from one of my true experiences with fear. We must face our fears and when we do they will dissipate.

Shakespeare also said it well:

“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.”

(This quote has also helped me to face fears many times in my life.)

Security

Fall in the Forest Looking for a place to run and hide.

Health problems falling like Fall leaves

Upon my foundation of faith.

Above me threatening

Fears loom like dark clouds,

And Doubts circle around,

Causing a chill,

Til I hear

My Lord

Speak.

Reverse Etheree

He says in Psalm 32:7 that: 

  • He is my Hiding Place.
  • He will protect me from trouble
  • He will surround me and shout for my deliverance

Doubts

staircase
To win

Don’t dwell with doubts

Doubts are just traitors

They promote fear, cause loss

In life

They keep attempts from happening

Quench good and create losers

Do not listen

To them
