its a poem about fear,my poem tells you how fear can controle you .


Fear robs you of your life, it controls you

It puts you into a cell inside your soul.

Fear distorts your site of what you need to see clearly.

Sometimes fear can be the thing that keeps your life in


Never to move, never to grow , never to live.

Fear is a black hole of despair that sinks your feet like


When you take that big step to face whatever you fear

the most

You will discover your very strength that you have always

had that strength

From God, sometimes you have to ask God to give you

the strength to face Fear.

Facing fear may be as simple as looking into your soul

to see what you’re running

From all  your life. What is your fear? What do you run

from with drugs or drinking

Or even pills or working? What is it in life that you keep

your   mind from facing?

You began to really live when you face all your fears.

You begin anew.

When you face fear you began a new change, a change

   of growth. The chains of fear no longer

Keep you chained down is despair. When growth stops,

Bitterness   sets in. When healing starts, peace begins.

Walk with   God, walk in his shades of grace.

(44) Karla Reeves

This is my poem. Grateful       for   the sun   coming up every day?

Instead sometimes we get lost   in the past stupid things that

Happened between   families   . Ask yourself right now the things

You  lived in the past—the past pain. If you were dying right now,

would they really matter if you were on your death bed? If your

answer is no, then go and make peace with whatever that keeps

you from moving on. This is for someone that’s bought my book.

God just gave that message to me for someone. Is that person

you reading this book? God wanted you to read this book, so just

do it. Forgive whatever it is in the past and live your life. God

would want you to live your life to the fullest. Be like a child,

in the way they get mad. We have all seen children little Mary

is mad at billy and the very next day they will be playing in the

sand box. What do you really have to lose, or are you afraid of

moving on?

Sometimes its just time to let that stuff go and go see the family

member and just have a good day with them, because when they

are gone, can you ask them to forgive you after they are gone?

We are family and sometimes thing happened. Just got get over

the pain and love the family member. Life is too short to be full

of bitterness and hate and pain. Some people find it easier to

hang on to the pain of the past. After all, what can you do about

it being upset for years? There’s nothing to do about it, but accept

it for what it is. It’s yesterday. Think of life like we do, live in

seven days a week of Monday’s? Do we? No. We have seven days

for a week, twelve months for a year, and three hundred and

sixty-five days, don’t we? So live your life! After all, nothing will

matter after the person you’re mad at after their dead. Then you

will have to let it go. Don’t waste another day. Make amends

and make things right. Peace starts with you, and if they don’t

want to let it go, then you have to accept it and go on. Then pray

about it. If you can’t let things go, pray for yourself. I did, and

God healed me. You can let go of the past and the pain. I feel

so much better in my life. I am living my life to the very fullest,

and I am very happy with all things in my life.

There was a time I was very angry with God, and I turned

my back on him. I am so glad God is an all forgiving God and

he let me repent and come back to him. I still haven’t read the

The Shades of Grace (45)

Bible all the way through. It’s a very hard book to read, let alone

understand. But I had a wonderful grandmother Ruth that would

teach class, and I would get in her class. She would teach me

so much. I miss her reading the Bible to me as a child. Some of

the things we did like—before we ate, we would sit; before we

would eat, we would go around the table and we each would

say a verse from the Bible. We would play the Bible games. She

taught me so much.

Thank god for good grandmothers.
