With Me

Fade to black

HEAR: the distant hoot of the owl and the wolf’s howl

SEE: the bitter scowl of forest fiends…

the end draws near… behold faces fraught with fear

Death treads the gory paths of hell tonight,

the fire is fierce and fearless,

my soul is pierced with the poisoned arrow-tip of fright, 

 

the earth shrieks like a sissy, bursting apart at the seams…
and I am alone,

surrounded by the echo of coming storms,

harbingers of untold woe and callous foes…

I walk the dark alley of death…
But

YOU are with me

a shining light, a sturdy rod, a gentle and warm fire

in the midst of the chill and chaos…

YOU are with me

I am your servant and I am your son –

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I fear no evil,

for You are with me;

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Petroleum engineer? Yup. But I love writing as much as I love solving complex reservoir engineering problems. Watch out for poetry. Still trying to soar the heights of prose tho' Stay tuned dearies.
