Flight from Fright

When darkness consumes,

And light fails

to shine through,

Attempts to go beyond

simply doing

can make life

very fulfilling,

And even betrayal

is subject to


for self-forgiveness

can prompt an author

to understand the significance

of thoughts,

And even as memories

become forgotten,

Treasure the times

of youthful innocence,

When children could

laugh and play,

And when the day

of maturation arrives,

express gratitude

for being alive,

And search for


Knowing that the future

could hold wonders

currently unknown,

and then look back

only to realize

how much one has grown
