Stranger Amidst The Darkness
Like a dream, I walked amongst darkness and clouds;
Squinting to see any source of light, listening closely for sounds.
Specks of lights would pierce the blackness here and there;
Never being enough to light my path, and leaving me in despair.
Providing only false hope and a world so bare.
Every so often someone else close and dear;
Will make their way through the darkness to me, after my cries they hear.
Giving seed of promise, which takes time to take root and grow;
Sometimes wishing that things of wisdom come quicker like a gift with a big bow.
Then every once in awhile, a stranger walks into my life;
During moments of great strife;
That cut through my heart like a knife.
They show me such powerful wisdom and hope;
Which is immediately life changing and broadening my life’s scope.
Though the darkness and clouds still surround me;
These strangers provide me with a torch so that I can see.
Allowing for me to become fearless and free.
Giving me courage to roam around;
And by boundaries not to be bound.
For it has been shown to me that boundaries are manmade;
Made for your mind to stop dreaming and to be put under a shade.
Those who dared to dream;
Broke through these barriers and pursued life with full stream.
Strangers walking into our lives through the midst;
Push us beyond these boundaries until we get the jist.
That we should not get swallowed up in the mist.
