Spark

I just thought I would share a poem that was written by Meghan Rienks, and I am just really loving this poem because it’s just so meaningful:

There is something both frightening and yet so very comforting about darkness
It’s in the way it hugs every curve of your body
How it forgives those mountains and plateaus that the daylight does not
In the darkness you can hide
You can hide from pretty much anything
So you turn off the lights so you don’t have to look in the mirror
And you shut the blinds so it seems like the sun stopped shinning for everyone else too
And it’s quiet
And it’s dark
And it’s lonely

But it’s not forever
This life of yours will not be defined by the moment in which you cease to exist
You can’t see it now but, It’s got chapters, and volumes and sequels and a future
And that body you’re cloaking in shadows is carved with so much beauty
In the fog as you forgetting how your bewitching mind is
One of a kind
Irreplaceable
In the darkness you can’t see any of that
So light it up
And ignite that spark

It’s not about being happy all of the time
It’s about recognizing those moments in which you really feel alive
When goosebumps crawl up your arms and you can’t help the smile breaking across your face
It’s that feeling when you hear that song on the radio you love so much
When you’re running so fast you can taste your heart beat
In those singular moments when it feels as if your soul is rising from your body
Looks down at you, and says, remember this.
This moment
This is who you are
You are not your grades
or your jean size
or your anxiety
or your depression
You are not your past
You are not defined by a number or a phrase or a moment

You are light
A sparkling, dazzling, electrifying glow
And you burn brighter than even the deepest of shadows

The darkness will return
That’s an inevitable fact
You’ll have moments of weakness
And you’ll wonder where the light went
But here’s the secret
That light is you
and nobody can take that away
