A New Beginning
Darkness descends; clouding my thoughts, my judgement, my decency.
His words batter against me.
Like the waves that beat their rhythm; slowly the rocks give way; and so do I.
I cannot grasp the full meaning of his intentions, nor do I understand what he desires. But through hazy thoughts I am able to understand that he means me harm.
Though time takes a toll, I emerge from within my hiding place; changed.
Now knowing what despair can look like, but also aware of the fragrant smell of hope.
