Light We Are

    Radiance emitted from beyond

this cage,

made palpable through a hole

tiny in size,

seemed to quell my rage

fear let assauge,

curiosity continuing to rise I set off to

the hole to further my surmise.

    To my surprise I saw something I dared

never to see,

until the day I let me

be me,

inquiring about the cage I felt

heart and mind be free,

the hole opening up to

let myself see,

the prison I created would not

let me be.

    I jumped out basking in lights glow,

drowning thoughts let themselves go,

my true self in the warmth let show,

the cell of darkness no longer apropos.

    Light we are -

this I now know.
