I’m hiding in this darkness for so long
I don’t remember light.
I thought I would open a window and see
What’s outside night.
But on the glance of what should be hope,
I was blinded by the ray.
I never knew light would cause me
To know such vivid pain.
But its warmth had a touch and a
Sight of what could be,
I was still scared by the pain of knowing
I really wasn’t free.
The prison I was locked in is
A cage of my own design.
Only I could use a key of faith
One had left for me to find.
Breaking the hardened seal
Of my sepulchered life,
I blinked back tears at
What's outside night.
