I used to be too afraid to Climb I’d fallen from heights Fallen far enough to kill a man Or at least crush him underneath the weight of fear. Now I’ve given up on not falling Facing my fear Trembles turn to Smiles Troubled Thoughts turn to Dreams of the Future. My God, I neverContinue reading “The Courage to Climb Once Again”
While I lie in deep despair While I suffer mortal agony While I am alone, deeply empty into my bones While I wonder what, if anything, will ever change… There you go again… I turn to You. I gaze into your wondrous eyes. I look into that beauty that is mine. I allow it toContinue reading “Poem – Thankful and Grateful”
It’s been a long hard road Every day fraught with trouble. I’ve been fight or flight It’s been so long, It could be my whole life. Always fighting fear and pain.

Anxiety, Fear, Worry, Panic! Take a deep breath my child…and another.. You are okay. You are okay. Do you know who holds you? Have you felt the hand that lifts you? Do you know my power?

Why so lonely my child? All the bad feelings parade around. Where can salvation from this be found? Or do I find a home in this frightful grave? I just can’t seem to find the way.
