I find myself crawling inside to a place that feels safe, I’m unable to resist.
I settle in, surrounded by thoughts that chafe…the inky black feelings persist.
I could stay here, huddled in a corner of my mind, curled into a ball.
…but these are the kind of thoughts that bind and make me feel so small.
From nowhere a thought trips through my mind…”this is not the only way.”
“You can leave this place of darkness behind. Trust me, I’ll show you the way.”
I feel a rush of energy, a stirring inside. My spirit knows this to be true.
I will follow this voice and seek the light, I decide. “Please tell me what to do.”
“Choice is the power that you have to wield. Choose your actions and your thoughts with care.”
“Honor your emotions and know that they will yield. Something stronger, at your core, is there.”
“Radiate love from the center of your being, you have so much to give.”
“Focus on light, love, laughter and believing, and then you will truly live.”
