Feeling It All

In the darkness, spirals called
Winding wells and staircases tall
Regret and worry, fashioned lenses
Costumes and masks, ill-fitting pretenses

Naked and bare, exposed to the core
Questions unanswered, left wanting more
Measures and comparisons, not quite enough
Sometimes the darkness has been pretty tough

But the light is brighter than ever before
No fear of darkness, not any more
Embracing it all, the darkness and light
The in-betweens, the fights and flights

Feeling it all like never before
This ME I was meant to be, open and whole
