"Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail. Think of it: always."
-Gandhi


I am here
Lonely and lost
In a wood grown dark as a moonless eve
Shadows covering
But I am here

I am here
As the seas grow dark
And the blue brine heavens coalse in time with the sea below
Sitting in an empty wooden vessel
On a journey I lack to comprehend
But I am here

I am here
The darkness penetrates
It takes my voice
But know
Please know
I am here

I am here
But here is bleak, frigid
For the whirling winds bellow with an unknown furry
Beating as the waves that crash heavily my bare, vulnerable back
Screaming with an undying anguish
I am here

But look
Look deep into my ocean blue eyes
Painted as God did the canvas of the earth long, long ago
And see the child
That I am
See me

And reach
Stretch your hand
Soft and warm
And let it caress that of my own
Let it be as a path bright and shining from this darkness
And a tide carrying me ever so gently home from the wide open seas
For you are my light in the darkness
If only you knew
I am here
