The Courage To Ask A Simple Question: A Poem

Hi there! I hope you all enjoy this evening’s poem. Please feel free to leave a comment about anything you liked (or otherwise) about this piece, as I always really appreciate feedback!


Has it always been this way?

Was it always there inside, waiting to emerge,

Slowly corroding the edges of the light,

Unnoticed, until, trapped,

I was left with no escape

As the darkness settled in

As if to stay.

And as the shadows loomed, I knew

Inside, exactly

What it was I had to do;

But who,

In the deepest darkness of the night,

Has the courage

To reach outwards with their voice

And simply ask

For a light?
