From The Light

Into this world we stumble
From the light
Eyes adjusting
To the darker hues
Of humanity
Become accustomed
To the heavy weight
Of flesh and bone
Fragments escaping
Yearning for a
Far too quickly
Forgotten home

Like a child we
Stumble blindly
In this forest
Teeming with life
And broken stone
The shadows claim us
As proportion
Light and shade
Sinews stretching
Breath we’re claiming
Far too quickly
Are we made

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
