Reaching For Light

be longing

box by box
un-barricade the door
lock by lock
release, undo,
restore
clear a path to
step out, face the sun
it’s bright out there
it burns
but life’s begun

again

be longing
be uplifted
be finally seen
be in your life
be more than just this dream
be longing
be a part not left alone
this heart of yours
is tough
so let it roam

unbroken

lock by lock
each key a different shape
each memory of hurts
each bad mistake
box by box
your past kept neatly stored
each story when you failed
each hurtful word
push them all aside
the door swings free

be longing
be unstoppable
but be
