The Gifts

In my journey
to life,
too often
I nearly get lost
between darkness and light;
noisiness and peace.
Thank goodness,
I stumbled on the gifts.

And if the gift of light
brings me awareness
to man darkness,
the gift of peace
however,
brings grace
through acceptance
that such darkness exists.

When the gift of light
brings me knowledge
to deal with the unknown,
the gift of peace
however,
brings me wisdom
that great possibilities
often lie in the unknown.

And when the gift of light
brings understanding
to unwelcomed thoughts,
the gift of peace
brings compassion
that allows me to reconcile
unwelcomed thoughts
with my morals and values.

For if the gift of light
could walk me
to the valley of truth,
the gift of peace
always allows me
to run worry free in the valley,
all the way
to the apex of serenity,
and even if my eyes are closed.

For the gift of peace
brings the brightest light;
allowing me to see the world,
myself, and everyone around me,
not through the eyes,
but through my heart and soul.
