My Darkness Is

Surrendering

A voice coming from

Deep within my heart

Is restoring hope

Where hope once dwelled.

A place deep inside of me

Once happy and secure

That quietly became

Unhappy and insecure.

Hope has lit a light

At the end of the tunnel

A tunnel filled

With darkness and despair.

My darkness is surrendering

To the light of hope

And igniting my desire

With life's problems to cope.
