To come to the place of knowing that I am a well-spring
of talent floods my soul with pure joy
The years of darkness were long indeed
but they served to strengthen me for what lies ahead

To become enlightened is not to remove darkness
only to understand it
to realize that strength comes from facing pain
awareness comes from moving through darkness

To become enlightened is to know the inner strength
that guides us across the deepest, blackest caverns
until we stand triumphant on the other side
