Meredith Gibraltar shares a poem called Courage…it is for her first book Martha.  It hints to some of the dilemmas she faces on a daily basis.  Cheers!

I fear.  I stand.

I stand before my fear, scared.

It takes all my courage to face my fears.

I face my fears with hope and courage.

Everyday is a battle for me.

A battle that requires hope and courage.

I hold my imaginary dagger.

Ready to fight any evil that comes my way.

I now have the tools to fight you.

I think of my dagger and feel the cold steel beneath my fingers.

With my courage I face my fear.

My courage is also my weapon.

With my courage I face my fear.

I stand and do what I know I must.

I feared so much as a child.

Now I heal and work out that fear.

That fear for my life.

That fear of what took place so long ago.

It is hidden deep within me.

Hidden and has lain dormant for so long.

Slowly I heal.  I face that fear.

I have courage and hope.

Courage and hope for the future.

I will heal.

Courage…a poem

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about courage.  The book is slowly coming along.  I am almost at the end.  Slowly I write.  Cheers!

It takes all my courage

To face my fears.

Sometimes I just hold my breath

And do what I have to do.

Sometimes I bury that fear so deep

That I am not aware of it.

But I fear.  Daily I fear.

Now I trust in myself.

And I trust in God.

That trust runs deep.

No one is interested in me.

No one notices me.

What a relief!

It was all so real before.

But it was like a dream.

Not real.  Real is now.

Real is that no one is interested in me.

No one.  No one.

I am alone.

I come awake…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem for the second section Theo of her book The Dominant.  It is part of a major change in the book and gives a hint to the reason why I am writing this book.  Cheers!

I come awake.

I finally see.

Is it real?  Are you real Theo?

What if it’s all in my mind?

The danger.  The fear.

What if it’s all in my mind?

But.

What if it’s real?!

Can I take the chance

With lives at stake!

Can I take the chance God?

What if it’s real?

I write to heal.

I write to express the inner demons.

The inner demons in my mind.

I write to heal!

May God help me!

I am awake!  I think?!

I write…a poem

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about herself again.  There was a glitch.  I write about writing.

I write.

I am calm.

The words calm me.

I fear and am calm.

I love and am calm.

The belief in the good and love saved me.

Calmed me.  Soothed me.

The words reflect my fear.

The words reflect my love.

Slowly I heal.

 

I am writing one book called The Dominant.  Sections of that book are called Stephan, Theo and The Dominant.  I have decided that my first book will be all three of these sections.  Stephan was not long enough to be a book on it’s own.  Theo is the section that I am writing now.  Stephan was a labor of love.  Theo is all work!  I have put the section The Dominant on hold while I write Theo.  Cheers!

I write…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about herself and writing. Cheers!

I write to free my soul.

I fly with delight.

I am freed of the oppression.

I am freed of the fear.

I fly so high.

I write.

I suffer from anxiety. Much of what I write reflects the fear that I feel in my own life. It also reflects the love that I have felt in my dreams. Cheers!

Meredith Gibraltar writes another poem from her first book Stephen.  She belongs to NaPoWriMo and writes a poem every day until the last day of April.  She suffers from anxiety and this is shown in the poem.

Fear

I fear.

I tremble.

Will they get me today?

Or will a stay calm and face my fear.

I am guided.

With love and calm I will conquer my fear

and be able to function as always.

I face my fear.

The memories return.

I stay calm and think of you.

You have helped in the past.

I think of you Steve.

I fear less.

Thank you.
