the other side of Darkness

April 30, 2011

~
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. As someone who has lived through a “dark night”, this poem deeply resonates with me. Beautiful.

    Reading this most recent posting impresses me once again with the great grace my brother Terry has received to express deep things. Deep calls to deep. The glory of moving from darkness to light can hardly be described. Thanks again to Terry and Sara.
