He Understood

Sometimes when we are most afraid of something,
We are criticized by others.
Yet, God is there to understand,
As well as to love us.
Like today when I was horrified,
I was being ridiculed.
Yet God sent me an angel to help,
Yet care about me too.
For as I was too afraid to do
Something I should have done,
Instead of getting mad or forcing me,
God was the understanding one.
He sent me two angels
To see me through my fear,
And afterwards comforted me,
To wipe away my tear.
And as I felt ashamed before,
Because of one who got upset,
I soon was overwhelmed by love
And my fear was easy to forget.
