Doubt - Poem by Bryony Sheldon

The cold wind blows through you,
You find yourself alone
In the fog that you wade through.
The night wraps itself around
Like a second skin,
Its inky fingers claw your back
And try to drag you in.

Your head's so light and uneasy
And you feel like you're drowning
In the black velvet sea.
A demon is obscuring
Your map and your compass;
You're lost in the shadows
Of doubt and injustice.

Topic(s) of this poem: anxiety, doubt, fear, fear of self, mental illness, night, personification, shadow, woe, worry

    And try to drag you in.. Superb

    A demon is obscuring
    Your map and your compass;
    You're lost in the shadows
    Of doubt and injustice.. anxiety and doubt and mental problems is rampant in our so called modern society........believe in God, believe firmly and deeply in the presence of God in your life....... that is the best medicine much more effective than all the modern medicines.. thank u. for this great poem on this subject. tony
