Out Of The Shadows

Unpredictable behaviors Keep filling up my hours The nights haunted my days My existence loses its ways There was only sadness to gain When happiness turns into pain Just imagine how it might feel When all parts of life no more real But somehow among the shades I found a light that never fades A sudden illumination, a flare Everyone has known it as a prayer

Shirley, Your verse reminds me of the truth in the saying (paraphrased)...."Light cannot be overcome by darkness, but darkness will ever be trumped by the light." Great writing..... Jake

Cryptic salvation; glad you have found some trust and hope my friend - I have been rescued too - it is so easy to become marooned in strange perspective - you're cool, and I like the syntax - J.A.B. %

Yes..I'm agree with you, Justin. Its so easy to became marooned in our strange perspective. But I think every person has the power within them to go and find the courage to keep on going..

That's all it takes. A light to guide you out of the darkness and fulfill that hunger to be free & take hold of your identity again. This was a very touching piece.

I've been guided many times by the light but it seems like I always fall in love to the shadow..so I sent another prayer and hoping that God wouldn't be too bored to answer :D #talkaboutstupidity
