Worry envelops my soul…

There is darkness

That surrounds me

It blocks the Light

As I focus on only

What it allows me to see

There is fear

In the darkness

In not being able to see;

What is to come

In the knowledge;

That I will stumble

There is a fear of pain

A fear of… what may be lost

A fear I may miss something beautiful

In the darkness

Pass it by; unseen

Because my sight is clouded

My soul is heavy ladened

My mind is burdened

My life feels… dark

As I grapple with the hopelessness

I remember

“Only in the dark

Can you see the stars”

And there is Light
