Sonnet written in 1998 during my voyage of discovery...
Discovering the Light
Alone, I sit outside the orb of light
Afraid to enter, lest by ent’ring find
Myself – a sad and sorry soul who might
Awaken to the absence of my mind.
An edge of darkness closes out the view
I might have used to look beyond my life
Upon this sphere. I want to live the truth
But find myself embroiled in pain and strife.
Yet stepping bravely from the dark to light
I leave behind my fears instead to trust
The bearer of the Light which holds my heart.
There’s one who’s greater, full of pow’r and might,
Who bears the cross, an ensign to the just,
And aids me while he plays the bigger part.
