The Darkness of the Light
There are times we look before us,
here we see many things we desire...crave.
It's in this moment we walk to the precipice,
below us a platform.
It's filled with all of life's love, kindness, joy, acceptance,
peace, forgiveness, understanding and a zest of the unknown.
In seeing all of life's gifts that can be attained in this jump,
we take that leap of faith.
In falling...we feel free, almost home.
We can see the platform nearing,
taking on a new shape a new life form.
As we enter its realm,...we are taken,
swept up by our loneliness, sadness, depression, anxiety and fear.
In this moment wings of darkness envelope us,
only to be caught in the darkness again.
