From Shadows to Light


#WellWithin



The sharp cut of a knife

can dull the senses- overtime.


The soft edge of a flower

can awaken them- in one breath.


Heartbeats flicker

and jump- either way.

The difference is..


one long inspiration

or many clipped- unfulfilled

inhales- never releasing,

holding onto the pain

without surrender.


The lungs expand

to let light in-

dissolving the shadows

of stifled emotion.


Darkness gathers- like webs

guarding neglected pieces,

savoring the emptiness.


And.. muddled hope thrives


in the echo of sighs-

pushing itself-

up from the earth,

blossoming with humility,

and reaching-

for the sun.


The face of it’s petals

reflects radiant rays-

of triumph.


Inhaling-

deep to the root.


Exhaling-

the shadows cast

behind its form.


Hope- is How

Oppressed People Endure.


Who or what is oppressing you?

Are you oppressing yourself?
