The Guiding Light

A poem about overcoming one’s struggles and being called upon to help others do the same……..

‘The world is crying out for the truth.

The world is crying out for people to just be themselves.

The world is crying out for people to just let people be themselves.

You come along living your life by your rules.

And you show those of us in our holes that life is okay on the outside.

You show us that life is safe to be who we are.

You show us that it is okay to be who we are,

And that we’ll be okay if we let go of our fear and get out of our holes.

You accept us for our flaws and our fears,

And you say:

‘Hey, it’s okay.

Don’t be scared.

Take my hand.

I am here for you.

I like you for you, and it is okay out here.

I’ll be here for you.

I won’t abandon you.

I am here for you.

Take my hand.

Come and look for yourself….

It is safe out here.

I was once where you are.

I am here, and I’m still here.

I am here to help you.

If you take my hand, I can help you out of your hole.’

You show us that life is safe on the outside.

You show us that it is safe to live life how we should –

– How we are supposed to.

Warts and all – Flaws and all.’
