Losing the Darkness


The darkness hugs so tightly
Trying to keep your heart and mind trapped
In the pain, guilt, and horror of your past
Fighting the demons the best you know
But no weapons or armor for protection
Gasping for air, reaching for the surface
Losing ground the harder you try
Giving up, the battles too hard

The light shines bright, locked in a cage
Knowing what needs to be done
Struggling to find the tools
The demons still there, the war has now changed
Not just a fight for freedom, but for life
Wisdom comes from all directions
Which one do you choose, not one but all
They’ve been there, they know better than you

Taking suggestions, just say OK
Learning to live life again, maybe for the first time
It’s OK to fail, just don’t give up
Brush the dirt off your hands and knees
Start over again, like before but with more knowledge
Before you know, others will follow your lead
Lose the ego, gain the gratitude
Building relationships One Day at a Time!
