Steer Towards the Light
The skies will blacken, the waves will pound against the boat. The shoreline will seem at eternity away. Continue to focus on the light in the harbor. Steer towards the light, it will bring you safely to shore.
The darkest night begins to yield
To a fresh auburn haze.
The morning sky whispers a subtle radiance –
Welcoming the once-forgotten dawn.
So long I’ve been wandering, alone in Winter’s sorrow,
Desperately drifting through this empty maze –
Seeking sweet refuge in an elusive shoreline;
Hopelessly begging to wake from this nightmare.
Too long I have conceded –
Kneeling in defeat, surrendering to the night.
Left blind by the vanishing dusk, I accepted this dim reality –
Refusing to see the light on the distant horizon.
Now as I open my eyes for the first time
After my long Winter’s slumber,
I am greeted by the warm, gentle embrace of Spring –
Breathing new life into my awakened soul.
No longer will I bow to the cold, suffocating night;
No more shall I drift without direction.
I, alone, set the course,
And if darkness should take over, I will choose to steer towards the light.
