Poems – The Light.

We’ve all been there…we’ve all had our shadowy moments where the light of life doesn’t shine as bright. Sometimes that shade can overwhelm us…if we let it.

.

When you’re tired of one path, stand tall…that courage has the power to open the shades and let the sunshine in. Let your own light shine. Be well, and thanks for reading.

      Oh, a very curious insight that does run parallel to the poem. Sensory deprivation in all forms must lead to a certain deprived mental and emotional state.

It’s up to us to feed it the good stuff.

        Oh, I think there’s a wealth there…for those that are capable of harnessing the ability to tap into it.
