Goddess Light

by MysticIvy

Age Group: Adult

In the shadows of darkness, I saw the hate.

In the moonlights shadow, I saw my fate.

I hide in the shadows, afraid to come out.

Hate was around me, there was no doubt.

Was it evil of many, or evil of few?

I had no answer, nobody knew.

I moved some slightly into the light,

Not knowing if it was really alright.

From behind me a shadow cast,

Panic hit & then at last.

I turned around & there was light,

Warmer then sun, & very bright.

A stranger emerged & held out her hand,

From the look on her face it was a demand.

Into the light we traveled together as one,

Not saying a word, her deed was done.

She stopped at last & turned around,

What was she looking for, or what had she found?

She placed her hands upon my face,

To welcome me here to this beautiful place.

A bright light came as I shut my eyes,

I was all alone, who would hear my cries?

Beside me there was a presence felt,

In a quite whisper she said, "This pain to you I've dealt."

"For many reasons you may not understand,

But I've always been w/ you, & held your hand."

"I left you so very long ago, but in your heart I stayed."

"And when you couldn't go on, it was then for you I prayed."

"My child I will never truely leave you, & this you must know,

Just follow in my footsteps, & you'll know which path to go."

"So when you feel alone, & your heart has great despair,

Look inside yourself my child, because I'm always there."
