Prodigal Chronicles: Trepidation

by Joel Howard

A spirit of fear 
O spirit of fear!
Silence yourself 
Leave me 
Leave me alone here!

For back in the rooms of my Father’s house
This fear was never talked about 

But now that I’ve abandoned all
This fear
This fear would make me fall
I cannot stand this fear at all!
Go back home
As I too go home now!
