It Is In the Darkest Hour…

In darkness, eyes open
search for light –
touch fear
find faith

In darkness, I stumble
lose my way,
stop, pray,
listen anew

In darkness, vulnerability
strength emerges
priorities engage
soul mends.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

    1. Good piece, thanks. Throughout this process I’ve seen a psychologist, and it really helps – keeps me out of depression and teaches me how to best navigate the life challenge that is chronic illness. (Most days, of course, lol)
