This secret life of lies you keep
Cause me to stumble and in pain to weep
Shine a light in the darkness
Help me travel safely through this darkness
This wretched, blasted dark you keep me in
All the doors locked, I crash into obstacles never to win
This race, not without a light
Without a glimmer, a candle, something to grant me some sight
Because I can't continue to wonder-
This darkness on my own blindly
I try to ease my way around the blocks
But still, in the dark, I fail to see the holes
And I fall-hard
And you're gone
And alone I weep
Because I cannot make my way without fail
All I ever wanted was to be your friend
But you will not let me in
So I continue to blindly wonder in the darkness
Always stumbling
Always falling
Always failing

    It is hard to find the light when at last we have accepted the darkness around us. Fight the darkness and have courage and you will be out in a heartbeat. There is always someone who will help you through if you ask. Amazing work here. Always, Laura

    Beautiful! I may have read this incorrectly, Rebecca...and if that's the case, forgive me. So often we ask for help, but I know most of my life I've been impatient..always wanting to do things on my own, in my own time..until I learn to surrender to His will... Nevertheless, this is a beautiful poem and will add it to my favorites today. Have a blessed day. Love, Annalise
