Dusk falls.
Dread creeps into my soul.

Danger lurks.
My heart thrashes against my chest.

Keep walking...

Voices taunt.
Fear grows taller and looms over me.

Darkness closes in.
Panic intimidates and threatens to stay.

Keep walking...

My thoughts collide
in quiet desperation.

Doom waits in the shadows
Death breaths down my neck

Keep walking...

Then...a gentle whisper...
I strain to listen above the clamor.

“Do not fear.
I am with you.”


Keep walking...

A glimpse of light ahead
My hope struggles to its knees.

Danger fades.
My heartbeat slows.

Keep walking...

The voices scatter.
My fear shrivels up and flees.

The light grows brighter.
Peace settles in again.

Keep walking...

My thoughts focus on Him
I long to shout His praise!

Blessing waits in full sight
Life breathes into my soul.

I've come through...


“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me...” Psalm 23:4a (NIV)

Nicely done...and makes sense; which some poetic journeys into the beauty of inner thoughts fail to do. Thank you.
Rita Garcia07/30/06
Beautiful, I would love to be able to write poetry like this!!
Lori Othouse 07/31/06
I really liked the "keep walking" repetition of this. It helped reinforce the beautiful promise of this psalm.
Kimberly Mitchell08/01/06
It's such a beautiful title and poem. I sincerely hope it places. (:

A message of walking through the dark moments and into the light. "I've come through..." Very nice ending.
Joanne Sher 08/01/06
Very compelling - and the repetition of "keep walking" is extremely effective. Lovely!

You might not have written poetry in a while, but you sure must have picked up where you left off. Beautiful.
Brenda Craig08/02/06
Very lovely description of an overcoming attitude. Reminds me of the scripture about taking every thought captive.
