Life


Life was once
what scared us all.
It was the way we feared,
the way we hid,
the way we saw darkness
and never searched for the light.
Life was once
what killed and made us cry,
what hurt and made us die.
It was the knife that we used to cut,
the gun that some had touched.
But now I see,
that life is the door,
the one that opens even more,
the one that is always there,
the one that will guide me where,
the one that will show me the way,
so that when I get lost,
I can find my way home.
