Darkness in Light

darkness to light

Image: aimenabdullahabbasi.blogspot.com

happy is the one who faces

his wickedness

who dives deep down knowing

he cannot find his way to the light

without greeting the darkness as well.

happy is the one who grows

like a tree planted in black fertile soil

drinking in sustenance from the

decayed remains of broken fallen leaves

only to bloom wide open

in the morning sunlight.

happy is the one who pays no heed

to those who tell her to be good

who understands the path to goodness

begins with her burning desire

for wholeness.

~Rabbi Brant Rosen
