Beneath the Dirt

I was buried.

Trapped in my own darkness,

watching slivers of light come and go,

too disoriented and tired to chase them.

Suddenly,

the dirt fell away from my eyes;

realizations became understanding

and the light didn’t seem so far away.

For the first time,

it was easy to stand up

and reach toward the sun.
