In this darkness

In this darkness



Trying to feel as I go along

Visionless, moving slowly

Not knowing just where I belong

I make my way through the darkness, poorly



Deep within my nerves are rattled

Uncertainty is my only guide

All the while my hopes unraveled

Fear, unwelcome, by my side



Troubled, I wonder how I arrived

At such a place where no one belongs

Anxiously I try to find

Illumination to help me along



No longer trusting my instincts

I cry out in desperation

Trembling, this humble earthling

Hears a voice that is unmistaken



You should have known all along, my child

This journey isnt for lonely pilgrims

Ive known the way all the while

But, stubbornly, you chose confusion



In the beginning, as a child, you trusted

But, in your desire for independence

You let go of my hand, excited

Wide-eyed, viewing a world without limits



Now you find yourself in this darkness

Lonely and fearing the worst

But, I, in love and patience

Offer you the guidance you knew at first



Will you trust me this time, little one?

My promises have never changed

You will always be my forgiven one

From beginning to end, unstained
