At the very bottom of any abyss

past a cacophony of ‘feelings’

past textbooks of’ intelligent reasonings’

lies the real ‘you’

in that place of purest honesty

There is much darkness here
but also a little light

Use this light

which can chase away the darkness

to reveal your sleeping dreams

….just waiting for you
