Fright of Demise

Fright of Demise

It will go away, certainly it will disappear
Difficult situations based on time
This circumstance may remain for a while,
People silently stunned with fear
Maybe death has abstractly overwhelmed us from a different angle;
But, do express feelings, with your inner angel
It will vanish with an impulse of bravery
To bring the fragments of love
Oh… the physicality of life, is rooted in dirt
So, try to appreciate what is beyond.
Fear of death is like the darkness of night;
Learn to live with pain because every night ends
But; this cycle repeats again.
This too shall pass…… to live healthy again.

    Dear Dr Maria Pais,

    Beautifully written poetry. Apt for the current situation. Staying hopeful in Prayers and Trusting GOD.

    It’s really a dreadful to think of death , especially when it comes unexpectedly
    But if we are ready and prepared we can face it ... the poem is an eye opener to all of us ... to be aware that every life ends in death ...

    Nice meaningful poem to bring positivity into life also,

    Beautiful scripture verses available for those suffering from fear of death or any other negative strongholds like depression, anxiety, extreme thoughts... following need to be repeatedly said to overcome them.

    Hebrews 2:14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil; 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

    My Words are Spirit and Life. (The Word of God is spirit and life) - John 6:63
