Afraid Of The Dark ~

When I was young girl.
of the darkness I was afraid
my bed became for me
from danger a barricade.

I would pull the covers,
up over my head . . .
tremble beneath them
with fear and dread.

I imagined a boogie man,
was coming after me
though my own eyes
never once did it see.

My father would come,
quietly into my room . . .
to calm the anxiety
that over me loomed.

His words of assurance,
there is nothing to fear
reverberated right into
my frightened young ear.

Now that I am much older,
by man’s evilness I’m dismayed
but, now it’s God my Father . . .
telling me not to be afraid!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 1:29-32

Being filled with all
unrighteousness, fornication,
wickedness, covetousness,
maliciousness; full of envy,
murder, debate, deceit,
malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God,
despiteful, proud, boasters,
inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,

Without understanding,
covenantbreakers, without
natural affection, implacable,
unmerciful:

Joshua 1:9

Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou
dismayed: for the Lord thy God
is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
