Into The Light

Pain is a barrier;

It prevents you from feeling


It prevents you from moving


When you speak of your pain

It lessens.

When you hear others speak of theirs

It helps you heal.

The only way

To remove the barrier

Is straight through it.


A child kneels on the beach

Writes words in the sand

What once was a loving mother

Now is a forceful hand.


She wants to tell the world

But doesn’t think anyone will care.

Her mother once ripped a dress of hers

Then pulled her beautiful hair.


Now as an adult she’s told to deal

With the pain her mother caused.

Through the barrier the woman goes

Into the light, she paused.


When you aren’t used to seeing the good

When all you’ve known is pain,

The light can be overwhelming

 But peace, you can attain.
