"On the edge of darkness and light"
by Bob Perks

When your life comes to a halt and you
feel like you are going nowhere...
Stillness makes for a good resting place.
Your mind is racing in all directions.

Your heart is pounding.

You are finished, done with all the worry,
all the planning.

The sun rises low on the horizon pouring
across the grass like blazing lava.

You stand there shaking slightly as the chilled
night air at your back reminds you the night is
over. It's all behind you.

Having been in the darkness for so long, the
light is new to you.

You tilt your head left and then right. Squinting,
rubbing your eyes releasing the last tear drop left
behind from all too many tears shed over this.

It is, as they say, a new dawn, a new beginning.

You rise up, stand taller to face the sun.

A peaceful smile appears freed from all the pain
and your arms spring upward suddenly without
explanation.

Then words slip out, quietly at first, and you
marvel at the idea that you can finally say
something good, something liberating,
at frees you from the ugliness and desperation.

You whisper, "Thank you!" as the sun now warms
your very being blanketing you from head to toe.

You shout, "It's over!"

Your body slowly sways back and forth to
the rhythm of hope. Your arms raise and lower
like you are about to conduct a masterpiece
written only for you.

A gentle breeze interrupts.

You close your eyes knowing that this time,
and from now on, there will not be the darkness
that once consumed you.

You have given your life over to Him and with
Him comes the Light.

This is what faith is. This is what prayer does.
"I wish you enough!"
