When Light Penetrates The Fog Of Fear And Darkness

When Light Penetrates The Fog Of Fear And Darkness When Light through the keyhole penetrates the malaise And within that moment your soul gives sincere praise For that divine gift that Life's sweet promise resets Earth's clock to those times before this darkness beset Know Truth and eternal Light never mankind fails To conquer anything issued from pits of Hell. Darkness fears not man but rather eternal Light. On earth, we are in midst of that eternal fight. When Light through the keyhole penetrates blackest Dark And waking soul finds that Life is not just a lark Path is made to from within the black, walk away Leave blinded fold and in earnest begin to pray World parades its great evils as the one true way And sets foundation for man's greed to hold deepest sway. Darkness fears not man but rather eternal Light. On earth, we are in midst of that eternal fight. When Light through the keyhole penetrates our sorrows And we feel true fright and fear for our tomorrows Truth reveals Light banishes that deep wicked fear As echoes of paradise draws ever more near Know eternal Light, Truth and Time is on our side In that promise, certainty of man's saving tides. Darkness fears not man but rather eternal Light. On earth, we are in midst of that eternal fight. Robert J.

One written four decades ago when I was a mere twenty-six years old and then faced a time of darkest dark in my life. I have revamped it to modern times to address this dark plague that the world faces now and to yet again point out that the eternal truth that mankind has a great purpose than our time here on earth is a mere blink of the eye. And nothing, nothing, nothing can ever even come close to defeating that our fated destiny. Death and Darkness are only temporary, while Light and Divine Promise is Eternal.

This is powerful and shows your strong beliefs, Robert. Fear and darkness hold us to ransom, but for those who cling to faith, there will always be the 'light' to show us the way. ~ Best regards, my friend. // paul

Thank you my friend. Dark casts its power to blind, yet a single ray of Light may defeat its wicked thrust. Light, faith , Truth unite for a shield that holds against any enemy. God bless...

Thank you my friend. Writing truth, giving of heart and soul, a poet can not go wrong. I pray you are doing well and God keeps and protects you and all your loved ones my friend. This was born long ago-- but got new life as the dark came again not just to myself but unto the entire world. And only Light of Truth can drive it away. Happy Easter, God bless.....

Robert, I can only say Praise to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost! You have been Blessed by the Trinity with a beautiful soul that is willing to tell others the Truth. I applaud you for that and join in the same category for which I am grateful. I will send you a separate message in Soup Mail and ask your input because I trust your judgment.

Thank you my friend. I composed this new poem to be a part of my new blog on the many very famous poets that wrote on morality, faith, decency and the true gift of Light. In this time of great darkness, of ever increasing sorrows-- should we not look to the past and take from it the wisdom offered by such fantastically talented and duly honored poets? I hope that my new blog gets that message across well and that it helps others. If so, then the time spent creating this poem and the blog has been well spent. God bless...
