Out of the Darkness

Out of the darkness

where shame and secrets hide

guilt makes its way like a snake

slithering and then strangling

hidden in the dark

the fear to be discovered

the pain that always threatens

to break you into pieces

and leave you alone

a pile of broken pieces

to come into the light

so blinding and exposing

bringing tears uncontrolled

they fall silently like glue

to slowy paste the pieces

one by one

one at a time


Our community will hold our second Out of the Darkness Memorial Walk at the end of May to bring awareness to suicide.  I will be attending the walk in Thunder Bay as well on May 6th. This is a pic of last year’s walk in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.
