Warrior Within

I met you in the darkness
When I didn’t have the strength
To seek out the light
I surrender to hopelessness
Wallow in the pit of sadness
While you carry the torch
Continue the fight for release
I met you in the darkness
Where you waited for me
The only place you’d be
Fertile ground for growing
In these shadows where you hide
To offer me the guidance that we know
Teach the lessons I’ve forgot
I met you in the darkness
Where I stumbled over rocks
A photograph I keep coming back to
While we work to cut the cords
And illuminate my life
So I no longer come looking
For the darkness
