Tornadoes, hurricanes,
Winds and great waves,
Ice storms and lightening bolts,
Close driving shaves,

Medical crisis,
Loud startling sounds,
A short notice speech
To be made to a crowd,

Cancer and accidents,
Terror on screen,
Plane crashes, train wrecks,
Refugees fleeing,

The unknown future,
A strangerís advance,
Police car behind me,
A quick scornful glance,

Nerves and anxiety,
Fear and distress,
Dangers imagined,
Lives under duress,

Lord, see my weakness,
Take note of my pain,
Give me a trusting soul
Once and again.

When life is perplexing,
Faith hard to ignite,
His yoke is easy;
His burden, light.

Peace reigns in trusting souls.
Hearts are at rest.
True love casts out all fear;
Godís children - blessed.

Praise wells inside me.
My futureís secure.
My hand is in His;
My eternity sure.

Psalm 23:4 NL
Even when I walk through the dark valley of death, I will not be afraid for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.

The poem is great! "Eek?" perhaps implied, but a great poem anyway!
Jan Ackerson 03/05/10
Definitely one of the best poems on this level. Well done! I like the implied nature of the 'eek'.

You did a great job of describing so many of the occurences in this world that grow wearily upon my heart as well. You did an even better job with your closing: Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.

What a heart touching poem. You gave a great message, too.

Hey, congratulations Ruth, on your "highly commended!"
