the other side of darkness

February 27, 2010

There is a dark night
That comes to each of us
Engages the soul
No one likes to feel helpless
Who would dare choose the darkness
Life is on the other side
That’s what I was told
That’s what I found to be true
It is a part of the journey
We’re all pushed to the limit
Desperation is the word
Time to listen carefully
To heart, soul, and mind
I’ll choose good people
Who will give me room to think
Believe I can make it
Who have tasted the darkness
And understand the process
I will ask for help
From those whose lives speak to me
Who have found joy

  1. Truer words were never spoken… that’s why I call God the great compost maker. God takes the junk we’ve accumulated in our lives, and if we turn over control as you teach us, Terry, it can become fertilizer for not only our lives, but others as well.

    It’s a beautiful thing when the soil gets rich… and one of the ways your garden grows, dear Terry, from this blog. Thank you for sharing it with us!
