Poem: Walking In The Dark

I am
Walking in the dark.
In early days
I could not see
Could not hear.
Thought I was alone
I stumbled
I fell
I cried
In terror
And pain.
But then
I felt
An inner nudge.
“Go this way”
It seemed to say.
So I took a step
Then another.
As the years went on
Distractions grew
Storms raged
Paths diverged.
I found friends
Companions in the dark
Learned more and more
To trust the inner nudge.
Learned to call it Spirit.
In the dark
I laughed and cried
Lived and loved.
I walk unafraid
In the dark.
I have learned
To navigate by starlight
To see by moonlight.
Most of all
I know now
There is divinity in darkness
Strength in pain.
The dark holds no power over me
Now that I have learned
To feel my way through.
