To Fear Fear Itself

This is what makes me human,
my very own brand of fear;
while deep within my soul
His words of comfort I hear.

Listen, I do, to the voiceless words,
a deep drumming of honey, warmed
by love none like Iíve heard,
telling me I face no harm.

Yet I fear this fear itself
this face of the unknown,
even tho in His hands I be
safe, in his haven Home.

His Angels, they surround me
they are so real and then not;
His voice comes through them well,
sharing all of what Iíve forgot.

So I must realize that this fear
is only Satan in disguise,
and I should trust my faith in God
and know my fear is trust unwise.

"For God hath not given us a spirit of fear, but of peace and of love and of a sound mind."  Amen, Sunshine.  This was beautiful.

Your poem speaks to me Sunshine .... facing the unknown is a hard fear to keep at bay .... but with faith it can be conquered .... 'S'
Wonderful expression of your feelings ......  As you already know, you have my prayers .....

Beautiful like a sushine only can be
And so full of thruth
The last words saying everything
Thank you

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
