The Light is On #Poetry

I never knew myself until now
I dared not peer into my darkest soul
Afraid of what I’d find
When you left, I was the only one to know
My insides exposed on the outside
Naked, I began to truly see me
Now I understand
I have a new knowledge
When I look at myself in the mirror
I see me — the real me
It doesn’t scare me
I’ve forgiven myself
All these years, enslaved by fear

The Light is on

I am finally being honest with myself
The Light has banished every fear

  1. Jason, your words have such genuine meaning. Thank you sharing this journey through poetry such as this. We all need to be willing to search for light in our lives, and many times it can be found closer than we might realize.
