To the Dark Side

100_1415 - Copy

The inside self–

peace, yes,

but also disorder and struggle,

always the pull.

Pull. Pull.

What remains hidden and kept dark, unspoken,

destroys.

What is indulged and nurtured becomes us.

To pull away from the shadows is to be humble, to be vulnerable,

to walk pained paths with a trusted one.

A friend’s care goes deeper than deep to the dark, unspoken places,

and there extends grace,

forgiveness, and

peace.
