Wandering in Fear

Forty years in the wilderness
Should have been forty days
But for fear

Fear is a liar
It traps us in the wilds
Wandering without hope
Not realizing fear itself
Is the only thing we need fear

Listen to courage
Enter your promised land

It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub, my all-time favorite poetry prompt. This week Kim is looking for 44-word poems including the word wild or some form thereof. Head on over and try it out. Or just read some great Quadrilles by going to the Mr. Linky box.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. “Listen to courage.” I love that, because we need courage right now. (And some justice would be nice!) Your poem reminds me of a Ted talk I watched today by Valerie Kaur about revolutionary love in a time of rage.

  2. Wise words, Linda, and a powerful quadrille. The repetition of the word ‘fear’ emphasises the message. I like the way you separated the final lines to make them stand out.
