Fog of Fear

inside a cage filled with fog of fear, she stays alone trying to heal the scars of the past of all that is done, the ache of the present she cannot share with anyone, the uncertainty of the future coming with each rising sun.

will i be able to stop looking back and leave the footsteps i have made? will i regret the decisions i have made? will i be able to see a better tomorrow or all that’s left is heart’s sorrow?

as morning rays slip through the tiny cracks of her cave, she cannot help but let hope grow inside. with the leftover, brittle faith she holds on to, she’s coming out. she’s coming out.

she finally choose
to sink not in fog of fear
but in sea of faith.

P.S. Yes, she is me.
P.P.S. Written with a tear-stained face and with ears listening to this song:
Your love so deep is washing over me
Your face is all I seek, you are my everything
Jesus Christ, You are my one desire
Lord, hear my only cry, to know you all my life

  1. Yes, it’s lonely ‘trying to heal the scars of the past of all that is done’ and ‘the uncertainty of the future coming with each rising sun’. Everyone needs some kind of faith, which is summed up so well in your haiku..

  2. “Brittle faith”–I imagine all the saints have experienced it at some time or other. But to sink in sea of faith is to be rescued by the One who still walks on water TOWARD us, His arms extended with LOVE. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, LITTLE SISTER OF MY HEART, ROSEY ❤

      2. Oh my, are you kidding???!!!! Oh that would be a dream prayer come true for me!!!! I will now be “nagging” God to let you come–and close enough that you can see me from time to time, like holidays, for big dinners!!! Ooooh, I’m squealing with hopeful JOY!!!
