Mercy on All

Updated on April 23, 2017

Light pierces my darkest room.

A crevice permits admittance,

Betrays the sunray’s presence

And the stranger dispels my mind’s gloom.

My spirit lifted, my body takes flight.

I break the barriers and head outside.

How is it that now I’m blinded

By what just gave me life?

I recoil, retract; return to darkness.

How can I withstand the truth of my condition?

To see my life… better to close my eyes

And live with demons.

A wind pushes the shutters open

I cry for mercy, courage as light caresses

With untouched kindness.

Nothing can live in the fire that sustains life.

And veiled from view light pierces my darkest hour.
