I will not be alive today if all the things I feared had come to pass. By my experience and exposure, God always comes through. This is 2020, let’s stop being afraid and start having faith in God.

Enjoy the Poem.

I made worrying and being fearful my lifestyle

It’s something that was self taught

Why then do I get angry with myself

I am a junkie, addicted to the unpalatable.

This is the world of thinking drunkards

Walking and staggering down the road dead drunk from binging on fear

Imagining why more things should go wrong with their lives

Their peace, the payment for their misery thoughts.

I fear

I watch trailers of an oncoming doom on the TV of your mind

Where the actor dies on a dark gloomy day

And no one lives happily ever after.

I fear

So I poke my nose into the affairs of tomorrow

Experiencing what has not happened because I think it if will happen.

Panic stricken, I console myself saying “it’s only a movie, it’s all in my head” .

The fearful and his lackey are trending today

#terrified #doubtful #panicmode #fearful

Believers of illusion

Worshippers of horror.

Dawn to dusk wrestle-mania

Royal rumble, my brain is busting

Everything fearful is a participant in the ring

There are no rules when one is fighting what does not exist yet.


I fear

I dread the rising of a particular sun

I am sweating profusely from it’s heatstrokes

Strange to be suffering sunstroke on a cold rainy day.

I live with fear of my shadow

It’s because I am more concerned about tomorrow than today

My eyes sees only the imagined doom

Oh that I be raptured today so that there will be no tomorrow to face.

Very inspiring, I no go lie, sometimes I can’t just help but feel this fear but because of what I have read and learnt I see myself shoving off the fear and then start thinking of possibilities

    You are on the right track Reuben. Fear is a horrible punishment.

1Jn 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

I draw strength, boldness, courage and assurance from God and His Word.

Daddy well spoken. FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear leads us nowhere but strong faith in God takes us places unimaginable.

    So true, great piece sir. We face fears daily, once we summon courage to shut our ears to the “voices” in our heads. We conquer in every area…
