Light and Shade
As if sloughing off a skin and emerging
After a painful rebirth, and yes, there were tears.
Emerging into the light after months, years of being in the shade.
When caught in a grey void, time slows, and I fear I will fall with no one to catch me.
Running into the headlights, I fear I will run too fast and fall, spinning into a white void.
I do not fall but stumble, and carry on stronger, but scarred.
Time resumes it's normal pace.
I shuffle deflated, and try to walk in step once more.
Life goes on.
I am strong again, reborn again,
