Myriad of Fears

I hold in me
Myriad of fears
inside this hollow mirth
covered with luscious meat.
The results of my judgement
and the nails on my path
erupts the volcano of fear
trying to wash my shielded nest away

There...you came down slowly
pitter pattering with your tiny feet
as if you found
the reason of my fear

You touched
You smiled

I meekly looked upon your face
filled with Love and Hope

I recalled the phrase,
" Remove your shoes
to land yourselves in the owner's place
to understand his own pain"

Now, I removed my fear and
landed my whole-self in your Love
and your faith in me

Is this what I call Miracle ?
You have completely changed my destiny
and evoked my faith

Whatever the future withholds for me
I understood that only Hope keeps all moving on
Forever....

  3. I like that this is a love poem which could apply for many different types of love. The picture goes well with it too.
    Good luck with NaPoWriMo

  4. This meditation brings up so much for me! There's a saying, "Walk a mile in someone else's shoes," but your poem turns this around. I could hear the little feet, too. Love wins the day! Peace, Amy

  10. Excellent. Your journey from fear to trust and hope is so upbuilding. It is lovely to hear and read words that make us see that fear does not need to rule our hearts and that there is love and forgiveness possible in reality.
