Darkness yields to light. Released from the twisted, tangled net; once ensnared held down by the depths of despair, Struggling from it's grasp- search for the sky. Exhausted, yet determined, bereft of oxygen burst through the anguish, inhale deeply. Make way through waves of turmoil And rest upon the sun warmed shore. Sand sifts through the hourglass of time, embrace the gift of healing, of being. It is a new day.
