In the darkness, I can see my light.
In the shadows, I am gifted sight.
To see the truth I was trying to hide,
that I'm scared of the darkness and of the light.
For what happens if I let the light shine?
What then am I going to find?
Will I need to face a truth to see?
Will I finally understand that the shadow is me?
That the light inside is a piece of creation,
and we all have a piece so don't be mistaken.
The shadow was never bad,
the darkness is not a place to feel sad,
It is not evil or full of sin,
it is simply the vessel to shine the light within.
We are all a combination of darkness and light,
we have all been gifted the beautiful gift of sight.
Two eyes to truly see,
the human wasn't to be perfected in you or me.
That its OK to make mistakes,
its part of belonging to the human race.
It's part of living and learning to breath,
we are going to have times we fall to our knees.
We are going to hurt, we are going to cry,
what matters the most is that we get back up and try.
Tomorrow is a brand new day,
both the light and dark are here to stay.
The darkness is needed for the light to shine,
the light is there to always remind.
The shadow is the human journey,
the in-between immersed in learning.
Life is not set in black or white,
it's full of colour, and full of sight.
Change the picture and you will see,
the beauty of all parts of you and me.
