A Spiritual Riddle – The Darkest Shadow -By CordieB

I am the tallest, darkest shadow to fall upon the hearts of men;
I have caused enormous calamity, failure and sin;
With me in a heart, humans seldom ever win.

Such a cold, dark, shallow shadow am I;
I bring on fears and tears, causing humans to sigh, asking why?

I’ve destroyed countless relationships, successes and faith;
I’m quite subtle, yet very strong is my wrath;
All minds and hearts will inevitably at times see me in their path.

All humans encounter me, some more than another;
You see, insecurity is my sister and worry is my brother;
My father is fear; suspicion, my mother.
I embrace souls at night like a new found lover. 
If you are not carefull, I will suffocate you under my dark, thick cover.

Like a blanket of dread, I cover my prey;
To release yourself of my wrath, you must kneel down and pray;
Stay thankful and hopeful, live day by day.  

I’ve had many second-guessing what’s wrong from right.
I cause anxiousness, apprehensiveness,
and can make hearts uptight;
But my shadow is very easily overcome by the family of light . . .

For the bright light of hope, faith, and love shine so bright
And they bring courage, security and trust to join in the fight;
Such illuminosity, clarity, and brilliance is their light,
It will cause my dark, deep shadow to fade and disappear straight into the night!

This Morning I am Worried; This Morning I am Jubilant

You know I’ve been having one of the “feeling down” weeks this week; so one morning I started writing this poem; the more I wrote, the more I heard that inner voice of love tell me to “get off my pitty pot.”   And so the poem changed from doom to to aspiration, and I thought I’d share it with my web friends. 

I’m Worried – Im am Jubilant- By Cordie B.  October 23, 2007

This morning I am worried.
I am worried about where I will stay shortly,
I am worried about where I will pray shortly.

This morning I am worried.
I am worried about how I will eat tomorrow;
I am worried about all the pain that will follow.

This morning I am worried.
I am worried about how this relationship will last;
I am worried about that perhaps we don’t have what it takes to surpass.

This morning I am worried.
I am worried that people may think ill of me;
I am worried that I can’t really be me.

This morning I am worried.
I am worried that I may not see the sun again;
I am worried that from now on, I’ll only see more rain.

This morning I am worried.
I am worried that I won’t see by worrying, I’m wasting my time.
For in the broad scheme of all things, there’s neither rhythm nor rhyme.

This morning I’m Jubilant.
I am Jubilant to know
that change is surely certain, all circumstances come and go.

This morning I am Jubilant.
I am Jubilant and free
Because I’ve helped someone along there paths, and it has given joy to me.

This morning I am Jubilant
I am Jubilant to have a fresh new start;
And in the days that come my way, I’ll love with all my heart.

This morning I am Jubilant
I am Jubilant to have another breath;
And in the days I have to live, I’ll be attentive to my health.

This morning I am Jubilant.
I am Jubilant to see;
The worries of my yesterdays were most because of me.

This morning I am Jubilant.
I am Jubilant to see;
Most worries of my yesterdays will never come to be.

This morning I am Jubilant.
I am Jubilant, know why?
For there’s no need on earth I know, for which God won’t supply.

This morning I am Jubilant.
I am Jubilant to say
Thank God for changing seasons, and for another day.
