Shadow

Do not fear your shadow.
It is there you hide your truth
From you.
Do not fear the darkness
It is there you find strength,
Courage to fight
The weight of it’s truth.

Do not fear sharing this weight.
Connection, like thread
Sews up your wounds
That cut to the marrow
To be seen
In this truth
Heals not only you

Hold space for your own
Wounded heart
Lift it up to the heavens and wail
That they gave such a heart
As this
That feels so deep
Into inky depths
It threatens
To pull you down
Down
And further still
Into your pain

Do not fear your pain
Welcome it home
Rejecting it fragments your truth
And feel

Your heart has this strength
For though it was made but tiny flesh
It’s fibers weave tapestry
Over scars
A shimmering armor
Not calloused
But shining ready
With light to balance this dark

We are not singular beings
We dance between
light and dark both
When in the depths of despair
It is this shining armored heart that
Leads us back to peace
Darkness is the terrain
Love is the compass
Light is the wayshower
To the truth of you

Oh, that you
knew the strength
Of your own
Heart.
Do not fear your shadow
Show it what it is to dance
With a being of light
That being is you.
