Light Shines in the Shadows
Lurking in the shadows
of my mind, of my heart
Anger, hatred, fear, doubt
dwell where they think
they escape the light
I dare not enter
the shadows alone
With Light in hand
I reveal that which hides
in the shadows
of my soul
It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub once again and De has assigned us the word “shadow” for our 44-word tomes. Head on over and see what others have to say about their shadow or shadows.
Brave to confront them!
So good we don’t need to face those shadows alone.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. . . .The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.” John 1:5, 9.
This resonates deeply. Wonderful and meaningful writing.
I agree that one shouldn’t enter the shadows alone.
The Light chases away the shadows indeed.
This is lovely! Love the idea of holding onto the light ❤️
I feel the same!
Awwee! Love how s/he holds on to that Light . <3
Yes, it lurks and is part of our negative and stressed thoughts but you are right to uphold the light.
We do need to bring the Light with us to protect us from the darkness…even those shadows we cast upon ourselves sometimes.
We do need a guiding light to excavate those shadows… Love it,
Oh, yes. The Light of the World outshines all, and sheds light where it is needed most. Love this, Linda. <3
