I write what I feel…




When your gut is tight with fear

Remember to say a prayer

Because God is always near

And you can be sure that He will hear


You are a magnet

Attracting the things you dread

Drawing them ever closer

Like a horseshoe enticing lead*


God will protect us

He will never reject us

And the pathway to God is Love

We must clear the road for His light

Open our hearts to Him

Feel his love come pouring in


* Lead is not affected by a magnet – poetic licence!

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. haha no lead is not affected by a magnet but i will let it slide 🙂 i dont know if i believe that we attract the things we dread but i do like the way you structure your words! search for beauty and stay true



      Hi empressalice, I wrote the poem then thought I’d better check. There are a number of sites saying the same thing as above. So I had to believe them. Anyway thanks for liking my poem. Btw I do absolutely believe we attract the things we fear that that’s why we must get rid of our fear and replace it with faith as the reader below also agrees. Go well and thanks for the visit.


  2. So true Denise… I thought that about the lead, but realized that it was poetic Lic.

    Your words are wonderful and remind me of an old saying.

    Fear knocked at the door
    Faith opened it
    And there was no one there…

    Praise the Lord!


  3. Lovely Denise. I wanted to add:

    God’s love comes to us
    directly and through others
    Straight into our hearts
    and through sisters and through brothers
    Open up to all
    to receive the love
    and open out again
    to pass it on to others

    Thanks for the inspiration


  4. The pathway to God is love…

    I like this.


  5. Gulfstream horse racing park is just 2 miles north of where I live.
    Those horseshoes attract the money in my wallet. Racehorses
    have horseshoes mad of aluminum not iron. Lighter.


    • Many more things are being made of aluminium each day, Carl. Light and hardwearing too. Sorry about your money, lol. You need some aversion therapy…


  6. yes, there are days just like that…that i need to lean on him all the more….i like the gentle soothing tone in this…


  7. Denise,

    Comparing fear to magnet is very good. The more one is afraid, the more one becomes magnetic that way. And prayer is demagnifying the same way.

    I think the last line of stanza 2 should read “like a horseshoe enticing lead” for symmetry sake.


    • Thank you, Sunamu. I have found that in my own life…

      Thank you for pointing that out for me. You are quite right. I have been waaay below par the last few days and consequently I’ve been editing back and forth on a couple of my posts – sign of a confused mind, hahaha. Thank goodness I am much better and able to eat a little this evening.


  8. Just when I need to see something, bloggers (and God) don’t let me down. Thank you for writing something I needed to see today, Denise. I love the comparison of fear and a magnet.
