Hi, my name is Fear.
You know me, intimitely, for I walk among your shadows.
You know me, intimitely, for I walk among your dreams.
I strike whenever the moment strikes me, whenever your life is going right.
I strike when you least expect me.
Biting deeply, cutting quickly, rending apart.
When you look over your shoulder, I am there.
When you walk in the evening, in the shadows you will find me.
In the early morning, before dawns first light, that’s where I’ll be.
Did you think you could hide?
Did you think you could run?
I am everywhere…
I am nowhere…
I am everything…
I am nothing…
What am I? Your everpresent companion.
You thought you could get rid of me?
What is Fear?
Fear is what drags you from your sleep, causing you to wake in a cold sweat.
Fear is what keeps you awake till dawns first light, causing you to start another day, after another sleepless night.
Fear is always there, in the corner of your eye.
I am in the raised voices, that startle you.
I am in the loud noises that make you flinch.
I am in the smells, that trigger you.
I am in everything.
I am in nothing.
I have no body, I have no shape.
Am I any less real? Any less frightening? No.
I am inside your mind, keeping you from sleep.
I am inside your heart, keeping you from making connections.
I am inside you legs, making you run from shadows.
I am inside you very bones, causing you to flinch away from any form of physical connection.
I am Fear.
I am always present.
The harder you fight, the more I constrict.
The more you run, the faster I consume.
But what is this? How are you doing this?
Hello, my name Light.
And where I am, you can not be.
Hello, my name is Love.
And where I am, you can not stand.
Hello, my name is Hope.
And where I am, you can’t grab hold.
Hello, my name is Peace.
And where I am, you are cast out.
Hello, my name is Healing.
And where I am, you have no place.
Hello, my name is Joy.
And where I am, you have no foothold.
Hello, my name is Life.
And where I am, you are not.
Who am I? I am all those, and much more.
Who am I? Hello, my name is Jesus.
In me, there are no sleepless nights, for I am Peace.
In me, there is no sorrow, for I am Joy.
In me, there is no darkness, for I am Light.
In me, there are no shadows, for I am Hope.
In me, there is no pain. There is no biting deeply, or cutting quickly, no rending apart, for I am Healing.
In me, there is no fear of connection, for I am Love.
In me, there is no fear, for I am Life.
What you are, I am not.
What I am, you are not.
Can there be darkness where there is Light? No.
For I have overcome.
I have overcome all pain and sorrow.
I have overcome the darkness and shadows that lay in wait.
I have overcome all worry and anxious thoughts.
I have overcome.
There is no place you can run, there is no place fear can hide.
Fear has no power to cause pain or suffering, not anymore, and never again.
Fear is nothing, and I am everything.
I am everything, and is nothing.
Where there is Light, darkness can not be.
Where I go, darkness flees.
Who are you? You are my Daughter.
Who are you? You are my Sister.
Who are you? You are my Bride.
Who are you? You are Mine.
What are you? You are Healed.
What are you? You are Calmed.
What are you? You are Hopeful.
What are you? You are Loved.
