Before I am dead!

fear

waking up drenched in sweat
realizing it’s nothing but a nightmare
I get up to drink a glass of water
to drown the fear that woke me up!

sins I have done plenty
I do not know if the good I did is enough
to grant me a passage to heaven
or worse, born again as human;

never cared for what people thought,
never worried about those who left,
never a minute I spent crying over split milk,
what had to happen, had to happen!

what I was yesterday is what I am today,
yet people think I have changed, I wonder why!
I take life as it comes
no expectations and no demands!

with the guillotine waiting at every step,
uncertainty looms large over tomorrow,
I fear I need to live every moment
of today before I am dead!

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. – Anne Frank

Perhaps the most important thing we can undertake toward the reduction of fear is to make it easier for people to accept themselves, to like themselves. – Bonaro W. Overstreet

Every time we choose safety, we reinforce fear. – Cheri Huber

Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive — the risk to be alive and express what we really are. – Don Miguel Ruiz

    “with the guillotine waiting at every step,
    uncertainty looms large over tomorrow.”

    Very true, we’re in someways neglicent accepting that now might be our last time. I like these words, thanks for sharing.

    The emotions of this poem are really admirable…
    I like the acceptation and sacrifice, expressed in the poem.,,
    Really,,people say you have changed if we make no voice against bad…

    Best of luck for further creation…

    the blood of jesus christ cleanseth us of all sin. You only need to ask him to do it. … confess your sins and ask HIM to forgive you.
    that’s the end of fear and sin.
    god bless you.

    I imagine……

    I imagine me and you
    I remember me and you
    I relive me and you
    I dream of me and you
    I want me and you
    Do you?
    In my mind and in my dreams I hold you
    I look into your eyes and reveal what’s Inside
    You let me in and together we win
    In my dreams I find you, your happy I did.
    I hold you, kiss you, love you
    You let me in we both win
    In reality your scared, you underestimate you stereo type
    But in my mind I imagine you think of me, care for me and
    Want to break your barriers and you come break down mine
    I imagine that you miss me, want to kiss me and caress me
    Believe in me…and love me
    I imagine ……I can only imagine
