You can learn a lot about yourself in the dark..

The things that once terrified you no longer appear so large 
and that flame that you had to light for yourself 
will guide you to places that you didn't know existed

Thank yourself that you persisted 
You lit that fire in the damp, in the cold 
You nurtured it as it turned from a flicker to nothing but coal

Really, thank yourself for not giving up 
for all along there was an ember 
The light gets a little brighter each time you remember 

That you are a whole 
and hidden in the corners of those places 
that you once feared to face 

There's just a little more you to be found 
Before you know it you look around 
and the dark no longer appears so grey 

You are okay.
