Paralyzed by fear (throwback)

It is crazy to see how much I was going thru when I realized that I hated being in corporate America, but didn't know how to find the courage to leave.

I am stuck here
Afraid to move forward
Risking that I could fall back
Terrified to stay still
Growing roots in unfertile soil
Permanently cementing my faith of a premature death
An unhealthy existence
One of pure happenstance and void of purpose
Life giving potential wasted
Robbing the earth of nutrients
Producing no fruit
Unable to uproot and relocate
Without dying in the possess
The leaves all almost gone
Is this my death
Or is it just the seasons
This year I hope it’s my death
Because I cant take another wasted year
Scorched in the summer
Bitterly beaten in the winter
Embarrassed in the spring
And depressing in the fall
All because I got stuck here
Paralyzed by fear

  1. I LOVE IT!!! This describes what many are going through, but fail to trust God and their God-given talents to move on and be the change they seek.

    Blessings to you my brother for recognizing and making the change early. Hopefully your candor would inspire, motivate, and empower many others.
