When the Fears of Life Overtake Us
Poetry and Music by Andrew Pell

When the fears of life overtake us.

It causes disturbance and a lot of fuss.

Our life plans suddenly come to a grinding halt.

Yet at times, it is nobody’s fault.

We may be concerned with the monetary flow.

But we are not prepared to give faith a go.

Circumstances in life can change very quickly.

Life can sometimes be quite prickly.

Being anxious will not change the outcome.

Often it will cause us to feel quite numb.

Try to remain calm throughout the storm.

Embrace the turmoil, which is not the norm.

Think of the darkness as the dawn.

From there, a reinvented person is born.

We become stronger and wiser as a result of the test.

This can often bring out in us the best.

This is not the time to slumber and rest.

Embrace the darkness as we embrace the light.

Tomorrow is beckoning and radiating bright.
