I sense your wisdom –
the way you can so seamlessly blend
When I was a child,
I used to believe that you were a flat pie in the sky –
a celestial cake that God selfishly ate pieces of
day by day.
As I grew older
I saw myself,
much the same way.
Pieces of my Whole cut away
until all that remained was darkness.
Eventually the cake would become Whole again –
fresh from the oven of academics, vacations, loves.
I’d look to the heavens
reassured that you too were constantly
be eaten away
and put back together again.
Then I learned that you are never actually dark at all –
what we perceive as darkness,
is simply shadows.
You remain, always
Whole and Unified.
It’s us that have become lost in the darkness.
much like my own –
mine as well.
Our shadows could never exist without the presence
of their more popular Light brother.
I see now –
I remain –
I move –
yet shifting to the world that once ate
pieces of me in the dark.
