Why Me

Opening the door and going out is Risk
Meeting the eyes of a stranger is Risk
smiling and wanting to be Godís hands and feet is Risk.

Doing it because God says isnít Risk
knowing youíll die from anxiety by doing it is Risk.
My heart hurts, what do I do, Risk
I must trust, I must love I must RISK
Please God take away this risk
I want to serve you, I want to make people happy.
Why does happy equal risk to me?
Satan controls us through the fear of Risk
I pray and pray
I continue taking risks everyday.
Then one day
opening the door and going out isnít risk
meeting the eyes of a stranger isnít risk
I look inside and I know I wonít die - no risk
I can serve God and not be afraid - no risk
GOD HEARD MY PRAYER
NO RISK

I could relate to this piece. I wrote a story about an agoraphobic this week too. I think it is more common than one might think.

The only suggestion I might offer is I wanted more, I wanted to feel the panic.

I liked how the ending brought the poem full circle. We can do all things through christ who strengthens us!'-

Beautiful portrayal of the torment and anguish that courses through mind of an agoraphobic. Good job of taking us through as the MC pleads with the Lord for help.

Excellent job...and certainly on topic. Thank you.

God Bless~

An interesting article and right on point. Being held by fear of anything definitely is taking a risk, but God can overcome all fears. Thank you for sharing and God bless.
