Fearfulness

Fearfulness

As darkness falls
who will light your shadows
when the moon
does not appear?
Fearful and afraid
of ghosts from the past
who will protect you?
It is still unclear
 
Who will guide
you with wisdom
through life’s
temporal minefields?
Lead you through
fire and fury
Harboring safely with
love’s assuring shield 
 
As the sky lights 
with daybreak
clarity and possibility
reign supreme
Anxieties wane,
fears subside and
unnecessary nightmares
become a daydream

      Thank you Sue. I’m still like this today even though my son is grown with children of his own. We will always worry about them ❤️

    Thank you

    I love your first stanza Christine, what will we do when there’s no moonlight, something we trust will appear on a scheduled time, your words ignite deep ruminations. I love how you created this piece contrasting dark and light.
