Things to Remember When I’m Afraid

By |June 9th, 2014|

Once again another door has opened
Leaving me outside my comfort zone

Once again my mind is filled with fear,
Descending from my throne

But the thing I forget,
that I need to remember
I’m a daughter of the King

There is power piercing through my veins,
So let the victory bells ring

Sinners, they let their voices be heard
They represent the worst

So why […]

Never Again Will You Steal My Joy

By |March 16th, 2013|

You try to take my glow away

Ha, I’m on to you!

 

You think I’m unaware,

that I don’t see what you do

 

Doing all you can,

to make my light go out

Don’t think I don’t know what you are all about

 

Trying to knock me down

and keep me down there

 

But I have news for you

I’m staying right here

 

Up, up, up […]

The Black Abyss

By |February 22nd, 2012|

To tell the plain and simple truth

Most times I feel like I’m in the dark hole

I can’t get out of

Happiness, love and joy are all around me

But I can’t touch it, no matter how hard I try

 

It’s like I’m from another dimension looking in

Everyone is smiling and laughing around me

But my laughter and smiles, I […]

Glimpse

By |January 9th, 2012|

If this is what I can accomplish

with the strength and courage I lack

I wonder the things I could do,

if I didn’t let fear hold me back

 

What if I no longer fed my fears and doubts?

Fed my faith instead

How much further would I be ahead

 

What dances I’d dance

What songs I’d sing

What poems I’d write

If I freed […]

Anxiety Knocks

By |January 3rd, 2012|

There was a time you use to be a regular part of me

Wherever I’d go, it’s you I’d see

I never felt safe with you around

You turned my whole world upside down

 

I’d pray everyday and ask God to send

You away from me, you’re not my friend

Still there you were, always taunting me

I still held on to […]

Overcoming Anxiety

By |January 3rd, 2012|

Empty your mind of negative things

Take a deep breath

Breathe out, breathe in

 

Get your body in tip-top shape

Eat well, sleep well, exercise

Don’t you wait, don’t compromise

 

Remember your fear is only in your head

It’s not as scary as what you dread

Don’t believe the frightening imaginings of your mind

Also remember take it a step at a time

 

Don’t be […]

Panic Attacks

By |January 3rd, 2012|

My heart is racing

My chest is tight

I’m feeling spacey

I’m not alright

 

My feet are wobbly

I can not stand

I can’t think straight

Got shaky hands

 

Can’t do the things I normally could do

Can’t cross the street

Can’t tie my shoe

 

My voice is slurred

My vision is blurred

I am consumed by worry

For my safety

 

Wish I was alone

In my safety zone

Where no one […]

Paralyzing Fear

By |February 20th, 2010|

The kind of fear that clings to your throat

And squeezes it tight

Leaving you with only enough breath to stay alive

 

The kind of fear that steals your voice

Leaves you silent without a choice

But to be quiet, not make a noise

 

You’ll be inactive

You won’t participate

Your lifeless life you’ll hate

 

Because of fear

You can not move

You’re over-thinking

Your head is […]

Fear, Anxiety, Worry

By |February 20th, 2010|

These three emotions that haunt me

They curse my mind before I wake

They are in my dreams, my joy they take

 

Every moment that should be great

Is not, because fear seals my fate

From where these deep rooted poisons stem?

From which apple in the tree?

 

This curse that haunts me

Did not originate with me

It began taking shape

From the negative […]

Afraid

By |February 17th, 2010|

I’m afraid to live

I’m afraid to die

I’m afraid to smile

I’m afraid to cry

I’m afraid to hurt

I’m afraid of being hurt

I’m afraid to love

I’m afraid to hate

I’m afraid to move on

I’m afraid to wait

I’m afraid of heaven

I’m afraid of hell

I’m afraid to touch

I’m afraid to smell

I’m afraid of me

I’m afraid of you

I’m too afraid of life

Tell […]
