For I Never Left Darkness - Poem by Baru Gobira

Sitting inside the darkness
I step out, where else but
Into the hall of shadows
Searching a God.

Being Gods, they
Separate from shadows
Step out into, what else but
Gardens of growing light

For only Gods can be Gods
Others, serf’s of ignorance & moral blight.

I step back into
where else but Shadows,
for I never left darkness
Shadows are what I see.

What is that I now know
Gods are distant
Suffused with light
And free.
