Here I go again,

walking to escape

the lies that

whisper to me

in the night,

and the truths that I struggle

to live with…

I never out walk them,

they return, over and over,

sometimes the darkness

grants them confidence,

and they chatter


they have found their prey….


so today,

as I place one foot before the other,

I choose a new way,

I will turn,

confront them,

own them, embrace them,

befriend them….

I will rob them of their power!


in my light and dark dwell

as sunshine and shadow

I am never one without the other!


so voices, I hear you,

my own, and my projected others,

but I am re-minded,

have been reminded,

that darkness always gathers

around the light….


I choose to shine!


About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
