When Fear Threatened

I wrote a poem a few days ago that may seem a little strange. 🙂 I wrote it after our Friday night Bible study where we discussed emotions and pride. And what keeps us from obeying God.

I stopped when the snake threatened to appear.

I subdued my feelings – the anxiety, fear.

I hid all the past times I failed to control.

I buried the pain so no one would know.

I bantered the thought that I could be set free,

Let the words escape, let the snake-skin me

Be changed, resurrected to a soft-hearted soul

Who was not afraid to let anyone know

That a weakness resided deep down inside.

The snake, when I found him, was only my pride.
