You are born with a wound of darkness inside.
It isn’t everything.
It doesn’t blot out the light.
But it will fester
as life throws its hate at you,
and the wound will gouge deeper
until it affects everything you do
if you ignore it.
Oh, the things we hide in the dark.
Make room for the light.
Find healing in the deepest parts of you
so the darkness will shrink small,
incapable of destruction.
Embrace the shining through
the cracks in your soul,
and let the beams pierce all others
with only love.
