CONQUER
















Crises of heart
Or of the mind
Never allow to defeat you
Quench with resolve
Until you’re peaceful and
Eternal bliss will
Reside in you.

We oftentimes become or end up victims of our own fears, uncertainties and doubts in life. It’s either the heart or the mind that suffers. But life is short and one of the best weapons we can have is to conquer them bravely and with a firm resolve. If we do, then we could live a happy, normal, peaceful and contented life.

  8. This is so very true...our fears are our worst enemy. For so many of us, it takes a lifetime to realize that. Wonderful post!

  9. Very nicely said, Amity. Conquering fear was our Sunday school lesson today, I taught. It was Psalm 56 and David wrote about his time hiding from two Kings in a cave. Either would have killed him had they found him.
    Welcome to OSI. You may have written previously that I had missed. Sorry if I did.
    Per Amias, mine will be for the open acrostic also.
    I hope you have a nice day and a nice week, :-)

  10. I like the phrase "quench with resolve" it goes against the expectations - as "resolve" is usually thought of as hard rather than quenching. Good imagry.
