The Way – Nightmares from childhood

“Awake, arise or be for ever fall’n.” – John Milton, Paradise Lost

Stop! But they wouldn’t.

Let go! But they didn’t.
No! But they said, “Yes we will“.
Help! But they are deaf.
Go Away! But they lingered on.

And so went the nightmare called childhood till the day he found the Way. With strength not his own, wisdom above him, and boldness, the Way erased his fears.

Stop! They jumped back in amazement.
Let go! They released and ran.
No! They stood with shocked mouths open.
Help! His God answered with strong support.
Go away! They never could come back again.

Sweet victory when fear dies
