On the Other Side of Fear is Hope. {Poem}

On the other side of fear

is hope.

Even when the loss is so extreme,

even when you’ve reached the very end of your rope,

one day you’ll give birth to a dream.

On the other side of sorrow

is joy.

Just when you thought of giving up,

once sorrow concludes its last envoi,

you’ll let happiness fill your cup.

On the other side of doubt

is trust.

Discernment of what is real.

Uncertainty sifts out what it must—

the alchemy of truth revealed.

On the other side of grief

is grace.

Allow loss to winnow its way inside

and let all the tears roll down your face.

Love will have no place else to hide.

Sometimes, life is just a long midnight.

Sometimes, the end just feels so near.

But darkness is only an absence of light

and every moment things become more clear—

I’ll be by your side when the timing’s right.

On the other side of fear.
