The darkness can no longer hold you.
Yes, it can batter you with it’s lies,
tear at you with ancient fears,
return in the night with it’s dark whispers,
It can invade your mornings,
tie you to the floor of your own dungeon.
It can mock you.
But you have tasted the light.
You know its power
surpasses all, and sets you free.
About this poem
Inspired by my morning devotions, Psalm 96:1 reads “Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing to the Lord all the earth.” This is an early Easter poem, and also a poem for all of us who have been bound and break free, one strand at a time, casting off the ropes of doubt, depression, or whatever else holds us back.
