The Shadowy Road

I am an avid seeker of light,

But sometimes I veer off the sun speckled trails

Into the heart of the forest, unexplored and wild

With that unquenchable pull toward deeper insight

That only a journey through the dark can inspire.

There is nothing to fear on the shadowy road

The spookiest night cannot harm a determined soul

That knows its own course without needing light

Gathering up ghosts of haunted memories past

Breaking down the cobwebs of dysfunction at last

Illuminating darkness with each uncovered truth

Leaving a glowing trail of healing behind.
