The Path

There are thorns in the jungle
and dark recesses
beyond the forest of the mind
way deep down
places you had an inkling of
but would rather not traverse.
But these dark pockets
of shadow and shame
can be walked —
the only way out is through.
Go bravely,
shine your wavering lantern —
there are fields flooded with light
and roses
on the other side.
