Out of the shadow...comes light...

Out of the shadow…comes light…

Out of the shadow I peek
Not sure of the brightness
Nor what I do seek but there
Is something tempting for
Me to be some other thing
Than shadows you see so
Out of the shadow I crawl
Not able to stand it I stumble
And fall for the brightness
Now hurts my eyes and somehow
Through anguish sorry and
Goodbyes I find myself alone
Gone is my comfort my darkness
My home
Exposed in the glare of the light
I raise up defences so ready to
Fight
Out of the shadows alone
I look back longing for that
Darkness my home
