Coercion

When looking around
The corner what did I see,
But a scary man
Staring straight into my eyes
Without any fear of me.

I am not fearsome,
So easily overcome
By any other
Who stands up against me with
A firm presence, unafraid.

I only know how
To fade into the distance
Disappearing out
Of sight of those who are strong
And full of raging anger.

I fight my battles
With simple syllables that
Flow ever freely
From my trembling lips into
The awaiting empty space.

A frightening thing
Is a man who attempts to
Intimidate me
By taking away my voice
To reach out unto the world.

I am grateful:

1.   Jeremy, Christy, and Jayden allowed me to take photos of their jack-o-lanterns and cat last night.
2.   I caught us up on our Bible reading.
3.   Hope is almost well.
4.   Mom felt better today.
5.   We had a quiet day at home.

I hope you had a very Happy Halloween. Take time to create something before the day is over. I know there is plenty of inspiration on a day such as this one. You have the talent, just apply yourself and share your magnificent gifts with the world.

Thank you for visiting my blog. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism, please leave me a comment. I want to remind you that it is easy to follow Chronicles, in case you would like daily updates.
