As i come out of a darkness that i now recognize.
that darkness has a name,
It robs us blind,
and makes it so we can not see past the darkness.
Oh, there was plenty to be afraid of,
the things i could no longer do,
the fear of trying things that i used to do well.
That which paralyzed me was fear
and it is not a good friend to have.
Away from the things i could do,
i only saw the things i could not.
It left me immobilized and weak,
unwilling to even try.
It is recognized
and with that recognition,
it losses its strength
and i can continue on.
