In The Dark

By @lmgotstyle

In The Dark

Sometimes I feel like I’m in the dark. There is light, but I can’t get to it, and it feels like there’s nothing that I can do. There’s people there in the dark,crowding the around me, but I can’t see them and they don’t see me. Sometimes I can’t bear to hear myself think. My mind is too loud in the dark.

“There must be a way.”, I say. “It will all work out.”, I repeat over and over and over again.

Some days it feels like I’m living in a hurricane. Some days it feels like the winds are carrying me safely through my challenges, and others they’re pushing me back and back and back from my goals. Always in the dark of the storm.

In the dark of my mind I can feel the frustration, and pain, and hope, and desire. In the dark I can’t hide. In the dark I am free. In the dark, when I’m alone, I am me. Yet, no one can see me there. They don’t know what’s going on. To find that light, that I know is there, and shine it on myself for others to know that I do care. That is the struggle that we all know. The struggle to be seen as who we are and not always as what we want others to perceive as Who We Are.

Because, though we do hide, in the dark we know the truth. The truth is that we want to be seen and accepted. We want to be safe and held.

In the dark I feel what cannot be seen and what is not heard.
