Farmers Market




Lewis & Quark

Silent, yet demanding. 
it was always there,
in the back of my mind. 
It held what I thought I always knew. 
that which I had once held so dear. 
Never changing, always the same. 
Thoughts of past blurred hope for the future. 
I knew there was such a thing,
but I couldn't see it. 
There were times when it slipped my mind; 
others, when it was right there in front of me, 
begging to let it take over my life. 
Time would go by, but it was always present, 
no matter how hard I tried to get rid of it-
or simply forget about it. 
I knew it was right;
but I just couldn't let go of what I truly knew - what I loved. 
I felt alone. Darkness hid the light. 
And just when I thought I was at the end of myself --
it turned my world upside down.
Freedom. A word I never thought I'd hear again.
I knew that is what it was.
And when I did, I felt new. Alive. 
It changed me, completely. Inside, out.
My thoughts. My actions.
Who I was.
And now that I know what it really is,
there's no turning back.
"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32
This was a different kind of piece for me to write. Note that it doesn't speak to my experience(s) directly, but I hope it speaks to your life story in a new way. I wrote in first person so you can read it as your own.
