The warmth of the sun beguiled me
Leaving me entrenched in a pit of darkness.
Blinded by the scent of illusion
Forsaking all others would be my demise.
Crossing my fingers in hopes I’d fail
Mark of the divine on my shoulder.
Walking past the church one night
I left forever in the past.
Knowing it wasn’t ever the truth
Realizing it would never last.
Seizing the moment within me
Leaving darkness for the light
Trying to make what was terribly wrong
Somehow suddenly right.
Turning towards the light one day
I finally faced the sun.
Knowing the decision would define me
But didn’t know which one.
