Leaving the Shadows

As I leave the shadows
I am stunned by the force
of the light

It is not the shadows, in
which I have walked, that
have forced me to leave

It is the light that cuts
through the depths of
darkness and draws me into
the warmth

I am grateful, for this is
a new beginning, a second
chance of sorts

And as any gambler would
proclaim, it is unwise to
push your luck beyond what
is reasonable for a man to
experience more than once
in a lifetime

But I will likewise claim
that I have not experienced
this in my lifetime

You have my heart and soul
in your hands, rest assured

What you do with them is
entirely up to you

I’m naked in the light
