wraps me tightly within its claws,
even when darkness squeezes me like a vice,
I can’t help but smile;
for I have also known light
and have danced with the angels that live within it
Darkness for me now is a confirmation
that its opposite must exist;
because the universe works in constant balance.
Where there is one, there is also the other.
And so, though I find myself in darkness now
I will not fret or fight or fear;
for I know a light is out there somewhere,
and it may indeed find me soon.
