Steps ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #165

Sometimes the light
     Seems very far
And the way
     So dark and perilous
And the path
     Occluded mystery

I remind myself
     Just take a step
I remember
     Where every journey begins
I find my courage
     In the many paths already taken

I’ve held the light
     before
I’ve made my way
     before
I’ve found the path
     before

I will hold the light
     again

Dancing with the Darkness

Dancing with the Darkness

Standing in the light
I see the darkness
The evil from which I emerged
Clearly
For the first time

Just as I cannot know the light
Without darkness
So too I cannot know the darkness
Without light

I thought I knew the darkness well
When I was caught in it
As it touched me
As it coursed through me

I believed the darkness was me

Standing in the light
I sense the true nature of my being
Radiating this warm glow

I have not emerged from the darkness
I have shed it
Like a cloak
Beneath which the light
Has always burned
Will always burn
Has always kept the darkness
In its dark
