So many whys

 

drawn to

the shadow of

not knowing

 

aching

to learn

the truths

 

yet

 

fears

lingered

in the night of

what might transpire

 

terrors

to be blinded

by the light of

truths

 

love

was still hiding

behind

the closet

 

Did I have a choice?

 

in throbbing aches

walked into

the terrains

of thorns and vines

 

for so long

 

no chants

yet answered to

the moans and groans

 

out of nowhere

 

truths emerged

like fireflies to

the glory of

morning sun

 

all the dreads

and dismays

eradicated

 

The power of truth

 

Known-ness of

the darkness

and the light

 

love

now fully grown

became

 

in One
