Releasing the Light

'It is our light not our darkness    
   that most frightens us.'
We lit the candles of our Spirit⁠—      
  not under a bushel of ancient secrets      
digging as moles in sunken basements;    
but, a cavernous gateway to acceptance      
Trimmed the wicks of our heart      
  to observe Love blaze brighter      
from this darkest eve of Winter      
Allowed flames to alight memory⁠—      
  fill our dark soul of night      
with fresh perspectives in truth      
Felt bygone experiences      
   no longer hold us back;      
but, springboard our growth      
We unearth peace by offering      
⁠—not obscuring—    
our innermost darkness to Light
