All the while, I’ve been wondering

Why I had no one up-close

To light up my dark corridor…

Then came the sudden realization

That, having found solace in own imagination,

I didn’t see the corridor flooded with light

Because I had been living blind…

This corridor has never been dark in the first place

For, my Lord had illuminated my precious space..

It was I who was ignorant and blindfolded,

Escaping reality, not grounded…
