I can no longer live in the safe space, it is not safe at all.
It was only Fear that trapped me there and tricked me into staying
With steady dripping words of terror in my ear
Covering my eyes and turning everything to grey
But then Love came and stopped me in my fumbling
To sit me down and lift the blindfold…
For a time I was vulnerable to the intensity of Life
I needed shielding as my eyes adjusted to the Light…
So Love found a quieter place and led me there
And as I walked away the shadows shouted at my back
and clutched at any part of me that they could reach.
But Love looked into my eyes all the way deep to my soul
And I saw the shadows were nothing in the Light of Love.
They came from a small and shrinking place,
that one day would be gone forever, only ever in the mind.
While I believed in Fear I could be afraid,
with the world my enemy, and I no match for it.
Now I believe in Love and I am Beloved,
And the universe is my delight.
