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.)
Foggy Christmas Eve.
Needing a Daystar and Guide
To help find the Way.
Who will be my guiding Light?
Who’ll my Helper be,
In this world of dark and fright?
Lost in the darkness,
Crying out to the King on high!
He sends to earth His Prince of Peace.
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. –Jesus. John 12:46
On the horizon
Creator’s beauty revealed
White mist hovering
Vision is clouded
Destination is unsure
Walking in the fog
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4 ESV
“Poet? Surely not me!”
“A poet, never be!”
“Not a poet me.”

It always amazes me how our mind can get carried away when we can’t see things clearly or how our imaginations begin to flow when we come upon the unexpected or unexplained. “In the Midst of the Mist” is an imaginary story that shows us the importance of not letting ourselves get overcome by fear, or letting our emotions get out of control, by imagining things that may not be true, just because we can’t see the whole picture clearly.
Night skies filled with fog
Struggling to keep my vision
