My Silence In Me - Poem by Shalom Freedman


My silence in me
Will I ever be free of all the fears
I cannot say?

I am old now
And so much is behind me-
Yet the fears
Are for the future
Of those I love.

I pray to God
I pray with all my heart
And all my soul.

I pray to God
I pray.

    Nice, in the silence we connect to self and listen, stillness is where creativity lies.
    Relying on only the external powers such as the need for approval, and the need to control things are fear based. We must find balance.

    Shalom, your fears are a product of your mind, we can only live now in the present, we cannot live in the future and we never can. (Report)Reply
