Oh inky blackness of the deep dark well
where once I stood in fear – lest I fell
and disappeared for ever – into the depths
but no one even noticed – perhaps they slept.
Today it’s, oh, so different! As I gaze into the dark
of unbounded potential – the contrast is so sharp.
I’m energized and excited by the power of the deep
of life to be lived, of love to give – to waken from my sleep.
