I AM AFRAID

Feather

I am afraid
to ask for faith
I know I will be tested
with doubts.

I am afraid
to ask for hope
I know I will soon be
in despair’s clutch.

I am afraid
to ask for love
I know
thorns will pierce my heart.

No sooner have I thought

my faith is strong

my hope is deep

my love is pure

that trial comes
fiercer than the last
to crush
the smugness in my soul.

I am afraid

am afraid…

so afraid to ask

for that which makes me strong.

Yet, what will I be
if I don’t?
