Blessing the Darkness

Bless the darkness,
the forced pauses between here and there,
the steps back that cause me to
look around and see others who were left behind,
the closed doors that seared in
my mind the eyes of those
forgotten and fearful,
the shut fists that tightly hold on
to souls in need,
the confusing silence that makes me
search my heart for answers,
the gates that block my way and make me rethink my path,
the stony faces that reflect back my own fears and failures,
the darkness that forces me inward to
find the light deep in my soul.
