The Dark Light

I live inside four walls that are sealed
and shut tightly, enclosing the emotions,
the pain, the pleasure, coping with the
crude sense of understanding. I build
images of windows on these walls,
creating my own skin, removing the
dirt from beneath my feet. I don’t
know where these images take me,
making me lose myself from the
clutches of insanity. The windows built
in my mind is open with hope, light and
serenity that make me the person I am.
I try to build a window where sunshine
surpasses all my pain, all my worries,
creating a niche for my soul within
making me more pure, letting my
thoughts, my inner spirit endure.
