Light Switch

All my life, my personality was in the dark

stumbling around, not quite sure where I was, who I was

I found a wall, followed it, found a doorway


and I began feeling around, smacking that wall

Because I was pretty sure

there was a light switch around here



I can’t remember the precise moment but

there was a moment

definitely a moment

that I found that switch

and blink! the light turned on

and I found myself


All of a sudden, all of my personality was there

and not lost, not hanging out in the corner, unsure

No, it was unified. That light switch, that was

coming into myself.

I had been unsure, and then I was myself

no assembly required.
