Fearful Finds a Place.

Fearful walks among the dead
Full of fear, full of dread
Stalking mourners left behind
Taking from them; robs them blind
Wrings the hearts of mortal man
Not brave enough too take a stand
Fearful that their lives are doom
If no one exits from the tomb
A promise that Heíd soon arise
Remembered now through fearful eyes
A stone is placed, fears canít be soothed
A stone too large, it canít be moved
Fearful arms too weak to try
Fearful tears, no more to cry
Fearful whispers
Fearful pleas
Fearful prayers on fearful knees
Fearful that Heíll not return
Fearful that in hell Heíll burn.
Fearful
Fearful
Fearful still
Fearful takes at Fearfulís will
Fearful is his own disguise
He thrives on fear and spreads his lies
Fearful lives in hearts and souls
Fearful cares not where he goes
Fearful laughs at their dismay
Robs them of another day
Two days pass and Fearful reigns
Nothing lost is nothing gained
Fearful counts the loss and grins
One more day and Fearful wins
At the dawn Fearful awakes
The ground beneath begins to quake
Fearful stares at angels white
Into faces shining bright
Fearful, watchers bow their heads
listen to whatís being said.
Angels sit atop the stone
Rolled a way, they point toward home
Fearful finds his foothold weakening
Tiptoes quietly as if sneaking
Fearful quickly loses ground
To those rejoicing all around
Fearful finds a new place though
In fearful awe, not fearful woe
Looks around as praise rings true
Fearful finds a place here too.

Wonderful personification of fear, with a perfect, driving rhythm that really works in this poem. My only suggestion would be a few line breaks for more visual appeal. Very effective use of repetition in an all-around excellent verse.
Joanne Sher 09/01/07
Your use of repetition is EXTREMELY effective here - it really pounds that message home. This is very moving and excellent.

A truly awesome poem; but I thought at first it was about Christ; then I switched and figured "Fearful" was Satan; then I got confused; but just Loved the creative scenario. The Writer did a brilliant job - it's just this particular Reader isn't too bright. (it calls for 2nd read)but meanwhile...
Great piece of work!

In this rhythmic poem I love the switch from fearful fright to fearful awe. Good job.
Dee Yoder 09/04/07
Wow, awesome! I like the clever twist at the end, also. You've described all the ways the people, who waited for Jesus to rise again, must have been afraid in the days after His death.

The personification of fear in this extremely creative piece leads the reader along a road and sucks the reader in. A beautiful offering. Definately a pup.
George Parler 09/05/07
This piece has a wonderful rhythm that actually gains momentum towards the finish. Excellent message. Good Job.
