I've seen the light

 

it is so bright in my eyes

 

almost blinding me

 

It illuminates all that is around me

 

Nothing can hide in the shadows anymore

 

Nothing.

 

I'm not sure how I feel about that

 

How can I deal with those things

 

I thought were gone?

 

How can I look at what was in

 

the shadows of my mind?

 

Can the light help me?

 

Can the light show me the way?

 

Now it seems that the only way

 

for me to let those things go

 

is to shine the light on them.

 

See them for what they are.

 

Are they real?

 

Are they still important?

 

Do I still resonate with it?

 

Maybe not so much.

 

Hiding it in the darkness

 

shows me it had a chance to live

 

but when I pulled it out in the light

 

it dissolved away.

 

Ah, maybe it seems

 

that the light overcame the darkness

 

and now I can finally see.
