An old enemy of mine has come a’knockin again.
Taunting me, reminding me of my every sin.
He spins around me, above me, and even from within.
A nagging feeling that’s got me jumping out of my skin.
Whenever he’s around, I grit and grind my teeth.
He claws his way around my neck like a tightening wreath.
Then a light, with a small sound, shines out from the dark.
“Child, have you forgotten I can save you from that shark?”
Tears fall as my heart remembers peace of mind and safety from danger.
As my God once again frees me from my anger.
