When all the world is turmoil and doubt, when the despair taints everything we touch and chance thoughts release tears and collapse the fragile scaffolding shielding our bruised souls from a brutal world -
Even then, we can choose. We can choose to turn back to the darkness, stifling in its weight but comforting in its familiarity, or we can choose to take the light offered to us by Hope.
Sometimes the light is too much, it burns our tender skin and rips scabs off of wounds not healed enough to bear the open air – but even then, just to know it is there may be enough to keep the dark from swallowing us whole.
