Darkness to Light

Darkness to Light

A Poem by Renay

While sitting outside as dusk quickly approached these words poured out from my soul.

The shadows fall around me.
Light fading fast. 
Fear that my past is hiding,
There in the shadows.
Frozen, unable to move
I fear the worst.
Is it monsters hiding in the shadows?
I really don’t want to know.
Safety, where do I search?
For the light runs fast.
Darkness comes in strong.
Unable to stand the fear,
Cry out for safety, 
For love,
For the light.
Hear my cries.
Hear my fear.
A light shines into the darkness.
A lone beam,
Small at first,
Small yet strong.
Growing in size
Growing in strength and warmth.
Growing, chasing darkness away.
Shadows grow smaller,
Monsters, run and hide.
I’m bathed in the light,
Safe, secure, loved at last.
