Out of the Dark

Updated on February 13, 2018

There’s a bright light shining ahead of me.

It’s calling for me, waiting patiently.

It bears so much promise, that I must hold.

To pursue that light, I have to be bold.

But shadows tried to grab and pull me back

to a place I’ve once been, all dark and black.

Tears fell down my face, as they took over,

bringing back pain, once again to endure.

I became weak, and I can barely see.

Then I was grabbed by the hand suddenly.

It was a gentle and comforting touch.

It took me away from the shadows’ clutch.

My sight, it cleared; my tears, it wiped away.

It was hope—in time to lead the right way.
