the light

A poem about coming to the realization that you know exactly how she feels.

the light

where
there is a shadow
she chooses to ignore
even as it shouts
she turns away
and slams the door
pulls the covers over her head
and closes her eyes
against the dawning of the light
the insecurity
the fear
and the doubt
in her heart
she desperately searches
for some kind of meaning
while her Dr. Jekyll
and Mr. Hyde
struggle for control
in her heart
her soul
and mind
I know how she feels
I have been there myself
it is a terrible thing
waking up one day
looking into the mirror
and no longer recognizing
your own face
or the person you have become
but there is a light
from which no one can hide
the very same light
pushing back the night
growing and dawning
on the horizon
