The comfort of the dark

This deep dark inky resting place

May feel like wilderness

But there is comfort here

If you can permit yourself to fall

Allowing the feeling of

Complete vulnerability

This is not a familiar land

Don’t expect everyone

To understand

Or hold your hand

But do remember this

We who are beginning to

Befriend the dark

And speak of it

Are the modern midwives

Of celestial light

That is born of willing sacrifice

Of the old ways

That cut us off from the redemptive price

Of pain

And with complete surrender unto

All this collective divided culture

Has consigned to

The shadows

The challenging task is given to us

To speak of it

Reminding the world of strength that comes

When we seek the wisdom only found

Deep within

The comfort of the dark
