Lady in the Dark

You have a light,

But you carry it in your pocket

Never allowing it to light the path ahead.

Instead, the light, deprived of its true function

Grows dimmer and I begin to wonder

What will happen to the light

If day after day, year after year

That light is deprived of what it was

Meant to fulfill in this world.

  1. Yes.. that question of how much of our light it is safe to reveal is a big one in our present world. We just have to be brave and withdraw it from our pocket and let it shine..when appropriate…then reserve a bit of privacy for ourselves as well.

    1. Thank you for your good thoughts, Judy. Yes, we do always have to protect ourselves, and in this day, people do often use the most innocent things we might tell them against us, but at the same time, we have to be who we are and never hide that.
