Facing Fears in the Light

Note: this is a poem about perceived fear NOT actually dangerous situations 

There are times when the light shines and

Fear can still arise

Its not quite like banishing monsters from underneath a childs bed

There are fears that can stand the light

Yet you can see them now

You are not looking around blind

They have taken shape and form

While you know they cannot create a real storm 

This alarm keeps resounding

Almost pounding 

The illumination is hardly comforting as everyon kept promising 

Nevertheless your own awareness is one remarkable guide

You courageously face your fears even those you thought would simply disappear when light drew near

You lean in, breath deep

With sweat, sheer will power and skill

You know these fears will subside one day at a time

And when, with great effort, they more surely do?

You’ll be able to see more clearly all that is around you

The birds, sun and sky

How you love questions and taking in all you hear, discover and find

Your own unique talents and gifts cherished in your heart and mind

Heck you might even see me

Whose been waiting, listening and encouraging ever so patiently

Who turned on the light while knowing it would take time for your eyes to see through the fears that grew and grew when you could not fully see what was before you

I knew it wouldn’t be easy to do

Still you saw it through

I am so very happy for you
