This is something I wrote. First time at writing something like this so forgive the
mistakes and enjoy.
I am a shadow.
I look around and see those bathing in the light while I linger in darkness.
I long for it.
As I reach for the light my sins like shackles hold me down.
Down in the darkness.
Filled with despair.
I feel like I’m suffocating.
The never ending pain.
I scream in agony within my prison.
The darkness laughs at me.
Tells me to give into it.
I slowly start to let go.
To simply drift off into nothingness.
To become one with it.
As I close my eyes a thunderous voice fills my prison.
I can fell the darkness tremble in fear.
It curses the voice who has intruded into its domain.
I can feel warmth driving away the coldness in my veins.
The voice commands me to rise out of the shadows.
I reach out to that light once again but the chains that bind me start to drag me
deeper into the darkness.
As I sink a blade of light pierces my prison
I reach out my hand and it is met with his.
I can see the light coming closer as he pulls me from the depths.
The chains that bind strain under the force of his might.
As the light gets closer I can feel them give way.
Hope fills my soul as I rise.
I was a shadow.
The sins of my past held me down like chains.
I was freed from my prison.
The light fills me now.
I look back at where I was and see others locked in their own cells.
The darkness calls to me, it wants me to return.
But I will never go back.
I will walk with him in the light.
I will work to show those captives his light.
I won’t go back.
I am of the light.
