Out of the Shadows

I think it’s time I stepped out of
The shadows,
To experience the magick
I seek.

It’s time to assuage my anxieties,
And cast aside my fears,
Because I’ve never really tried to fly.

I have attempted to chase daylight,
But my ankles were shackled
To my nightmares.

All because,
I wanted to see tomorrow’s sun,
Without fighting the ghosts
Of my past.

I’ve wrestled with my gloom,
For she is always there.
And I’ve fought her at every turn
Because I was afraid of her.

There is a change in the air though,
I felt it in my bones.

A subtle shift,
A new beginning,
Where the future doesn’t
Look so bleak.

Maybe this time
I’ll spring into joy,
With the strength I have
Left in my heart.

Maybe this time,
I’ll embrace my pain,
Because she is a part
Of me.

Maybe this time,
I’ll win in the game
I was set up to lose.

And then I won’t be scared anymore
To step off the ledge,
And glide into the green hereafter.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
