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.)

Revived

Bright sky

I sat with Despair

She held my hand and led me

Into sinking sand

Where I met disappointment

Doubt and disbelief

I watched my dreams fading

Near Disappearing

And then I felt a presence

A Hand lifting and leading

Me out to a better place

A land of hope and purpose

Where the Light shines

Upon dreams making them new

A firm foundation

Where no Disses can dwell

An encouraging

Place full of life where

I’m building a good future

The Light of the Gospel

Candle light

Light, radiating,

Reflecting His image,

Casts luminous glow,

Dispelling darkness.

Glorious Gospel

Of Jesus The Christ

Syllabic Verse (5 syllables)

Jesus Christ is the True Light but

…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
