Voice in the Darkness

Voice in the Darkness

A Poem by Traci

From light to darkness, from smiles to distrust

a whirlwind of raw emotions

a depth of discontent

shadows whisper doubts, misguided thoughts

past experiences carry a heavy burden

staining the mind for the future.


Fear lives in our heart

evil peers into the soul

pain hides behind every doorway

and window

prying eyes, erode at the core

forsaken,

never to trust again.

 

Yet in this moment of solitude

gaze into the heart of light

things left unsaid are always speaking

in silence, in heart of darkness

with hope and dignity

turning suffering into liberation

if you listen clearly

and accept the wisdom fully.

Author's Note

Traci
A voice speaks in the dark....Silence is not an absence but a presence. Only in the sheer beauty of silence can we truly hear what the essence of our soul is whispering. We grow stronger, we discover our Spirit, and feel the Divine self within.

It is wonderful that In such turmoil and despair a light can be found in the strength of your own voice.

Miss you, sweet Kee.
That's quite an editor's note you've written, Traci...as compelling and palpable as the poem itself. How I wish I could see more of you, my friend!

Are you safe from the wildfires?

You have a good view and understanding of how to look "through" the "looking glass".

That's rumi talk right there and so very true. It's not always love and it's not always hate, not always light and not always dark, and silence tells it all. Good one Traci
