Poem: Climbing out of Darkness

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"You Say" by Lauren Daigle

"Climbing Out Of Darkness"

She tosses away the darkness
holding her heart,
discarding the fear,
following the light
she senses in her soul.

Looking for a glimmer of hope,
she searches desperately
for a pathway,
out of the shadows
before it’s too late.

With her spirit guiding the way
she finds peace,
allowing her heart
to trust without question,
rejoicing in his unconditional love.
