Fear consumes my head and heart
Every time I close my eyes, I can see fear
The fear is everywhere around me.
Wherever I look, all I can see is fear
I hear whispers in my ears
I try to shut the whispers out
I turn the music on and shout
The whispers get louder and louder.
I seek solace in prayer
Hoping that faith can rid my fears
I know that I will live in fear forever
For what I have seen and heard is unbelievable.
The fear I know is embedded with me
It will haunt me for a lifetime
I can choose to let my fear consume me
Or choose to fight my fear.
Fear doesn’t consume me as much as it did
I still live in fear and hear whispers
But, now I am stronger and can shut out my fears
I have faith and courage
