The light shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. John1:5 (NLT)

Don't worry
I know you're covered in it
I know it sneers at you
so you can't see your arms from your hands,
your feet from the path in front of you
I know you've injected yourself with a drug
prescribed as Numbness
so what's meant to hurt doesn't

But light
He knows just how to crack the code
He knows the right combination
to unlock the door to reach you

He will slither as smooth as a snake
through the cracks beneath the door
or in between shards of things that
once made up things whole

It's not too late
He’s zeroed in on you
in laser beam style He's tagged you
and has fought like a sword to
be by your side
He knows where you hide and
what you hide from,
when everybody else sees a fading star
He sees the child inside

So when
you start to feel a warmth hover over you,
it's okay, it’s His arms blanketing you,
and when you feel a tingle in your ear
that's Him hushing the child inside
You'll begin again to tell your arms
from your hands, the ice melting from off
your heart

Let go of the darkness and follow Him
He will guide your feet out of the traps set before you,
with the whisper of His light, saying behind you,
"This is the way, walk in it..."
