Shining in the Darkness

I walked blindly in the rain that night
knowing that for the first time
I truly walked alone

I leaned against a lightpost
set in the ground near the pond
and watched the drops of rain
create patterns upon the water

within the circle of light
that was my world

allowing the wind and the rain
to wash my fear away
as I realized

one can always find a light
shining in the darkness
