Poem: Dark Passages

Dark Passages

Dark passages
lead to light.

That is all you need to know.
All that sustains you.
The whole of your truth.

Dark passages
lead to light.

This is your biography,
your strategy,
the path before you and behind you,

Full of promise
in the midst of the dark chemicals
inside your brain.

Victory, it seems,
is in the persistence,
the refusal to stay in place,

to move, never fleeing
always forward, always
even in the face of fear.

Especially in the face of fear,

Dark passages
lead to light.
