“Facing Your Fears”


In the blackness
can you see the light of hope.
In the face of insurrmountable odds
can you find the courage,
to face the inevitable finality.

If you can do these things
you can face the pain in your life.
Grasp it by the horns and say be gone
or it will eat you alive,
like a wolf in the Winter woods.

Face your fears that gnaw at you,
that tainted your God given soul daily
like a piece of tarnished brass on a shelf.
Taste the bitterness of life,
to again taste its savory sweetness.


Timothy Michael DiVito c2021

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
