I had no fear and knew my path.

My days were clear — untouched by wrath.

My life was bright and void of sorrow,

In sheer delight, I’d seek the morrow.

And then, one day, a brightness came.

It went its way, but left its pain.

Before its splendor, and in its might,

I dared surrender — and drowned my light.

So now, in twilight, I stand alone.

My search for sight is all I own.

I’ll find the splendor which outshone me;

No more a pretender, I search to See.

I’ll learn to cope in every way,

I live and hope for that one day:

When I shall find my life’s true Source.

No longer blind, I’ll live Love’s force.

Omnivorous lover of life with interests from poetry/literature and science to geopolitics, health and art. IFB.
