A walk through the shadow of the valley of death

Help a voice cried
I wondered where it came from
everywhere I looked
darkness was around
except
for one point
there was a glimmer
a fair bright glance
as I looked at it

I moved forewards
and when I almost reached it
I saw where
the voice came from
The glimmer
was a robust mineral
inside there was something
a fairy, cute and little
who said help again

What is it I can do?
my reply to her was
you have to break the spell
by share the thing you shrink from
that upset me cause
how could she know?
by reading your mind she said
So I did found out
my thoughts where not safe
that all that lives inside of me
can be seen

The biggest fear I look up to
 is not to be heard and judged again
afraid that other people
stop me from being myself
so I shared this fear
with the little fairy
and after I'd done this
the mineral opened up
While a gateway set her free
it filled my heart completely
with such an immense power
that neutralized my fear
so from this day on
I do not dread and will use
this power wherever I can

Jet Rood Claim this poet

A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen then you have somethingvery special.

Writing is a need like eating and sleeping.I think we are all wondrous creatures who deserve to love ourselves and live in freedom.
