Fear Finally Seen

Fear Finally Seen

Fear, you have been with me all of my life.
     Yet, I saw you not until just last week!
You have woven yourself neatly into the very
     fabric of my being!

You’ve numbed my heart.
You’ve made it easy for me to doubt myself.
You’ve kept me from feeling my connection to God.

For years you have held on
     steadily,
     quietly,
     effectively!

But now, your end is near.
Recognition has loosened your grip.
The time has come for me to unlearn what you
     have taught me.
My willingness abounds!
