Comes the light

When you live in darkness and the light finally comes

The dark doesn’t just “fall away” the way the say it will.

It’s still there, waiting for you

like a terrified child awaiting an adult’s comfort.

So there’s that.

But what about what’s in-between dark and light?

There’s all that gray.

Harder to look at than the deep of dark

or the bright of light.

Easy to dismiss what’s in shadow.

But something important that lives there

needs freeing too.
