Im Done Dimming My Life.

I went to start by saying my intention to write this piece was to share that I am done dimming my light. As a went to type out the title, what appeared from my fingertips was “I am done dimming my life” and that’s exactly what I meant.

I’m done dimming my light for the comfort of others. I’m done dimming my light because I care what people think. I’m done dimming my light because I want to fit in. I have found the courage to stand alone. I’m done dimming my light to live for other people’s dreams and expectations. I’m done dimming my light to settle for a false security. I’m done dimming my light for the sake of false humility. I’m done dimming my light to wait for others approval. I’m done dimming light. I’m done dimming my life.

I would love to hear from you Lovers. Please let me know in the comments below if you are also done dimming your light too. We all walk in the dark at some time in our lives and we are all connected by the same light inside us. Find the light within, It’s time to light up your life!

An Onslaught of Insects.

They came to me like insects drawn to a light bulb,
all in search of the same enlightenment


I knew the moment I heard their pleas, their powdered wings could not weather the storm


When the storm would hit, all their precious layers would melt to the ground

Back into the snub and rebuke of their true skeletons


The dust of their transparent wings were all too soft and all too fragile

For the journey that must be travelled, is through the eye of the needle


I smiled and nodded to their selfish disorders

I let them fly free, dimming my light momentarily


For I knew what was needed to be said was from Above and these Holy words could not be translated into a sermon for insects


They flew away, in hopes to suck the lifeblood of another lustrous star


Never knowing they had a light within them, buried too deep among the thick sludge of their own demons
