Darkness to be made light
M A Heathcote
Without darkness where would the light be?
Without hell thereís no heaven!
Yes there is a darkness to be made light again;
Anyone who has suffered with low self-esteem
or depression knows itís an endless fight back
to good health, black clouds flock like vultures
for the bread of our souls
and the flesh of our hearts
to peck out the seed of our visionary eyes.
But we wheeled an axe of our own reasoning
an axe of our own fortitude
itís our own minds insight that threads the peaces
back together like a steel cable bridge
reaching across the dark expanse of despair
this is where we begin to know ourselves again!
our hopes fulfillment and who we really are!
