My Journey Home

The Light Seeps In

The light seeps in

Unnoticed

So fixated am i on darkness

It starts in a corner

Moving across the room

Inviting

Reassuring

Affirming

The cat follows

I watch

Wondering

Questioning

Dare I lean in again?

What have I got to lose?

Darkness

Grief

Loneliness

FEAR

Ah, fear…

My constant companion

In light I see you for what you are

A betrayal of life

An enemy of hope

Handcuffs on my soul

Your familiarity entices me

Like a moth to a flame

Like lessons that still need learning

But, you are exposed now

Again

The light surrounds you, engulfs you

Blinds me to your existence

Melting your power over me

Releasing me from despair

You will return, it’s true,

I am anything but naive

But the light will help me

GROW

RESIST

REJUVENATE

THRIVE

And you will become but a murmur

In the darkness

As my heart, my soul, my true essence

Will be focused on LIGHT
