In spite of my fears –

Spirit soars
Or spirit sleeps
When a cage of beliefs
Becomes the norm – our home

I feel safe
Behind these walls
They protect me from darkness
From certain uncertainty – the unknown

But this light – do I know her
She is so familiar with me
Kissing my forehead
Embracing me

Have I locked myself out – Have I
been living in my own shadow of fear
Praising the walls for keeping me secure
What has become of my self – asleep – here

I feel light
Tickling my bare feet
I feel brisk air stirring me awake
I think I will step out now – in spite of my fears
