Answered Prayers? Bound in the Light

This beautiful writing is by Dauntless Vitality of A Dauntless Journey. It's especially meaningful to me in light of many recent conversations, public and private, about doubt. Disillusionment, disenchantment, disconnectedness. People doubting their place in the thing they do, doubting their trust in their partnership, whatever form that may take.

This lryic, affirming piece is written in the voice of a Great Dom who has no doubts.

Bound in the Light
You came to me 
I took you there
To all the places you denied but needed to go
The walls…The numbness
The hollow feelings…The need to hide
The fear…All gone
Breathe deep…Life fills you
You no longer just exist
You now live to feel
To feel the excitement
To feel the arousal of the senses
To feel what’s it’s like to be cared for
Feelings within your heart and mind
Feelings you didn’t know were possible
Just to feel at all is new
And feeling like you belong and have found yourself
Your true self
The one you have been made to feel was wrong
You now see it fills you with peace
It feels safe…Secure…Protected
It feels like home
And here you lie
Completely open and available
Allowing access to all you are
Begging to be molded…shaped…formed
And shown who you already are
Not changed or made what you are not
Brought to the forefront of all you already are
A new fear…anxiety…nervousness
Now envelopes you
Not of what lies before you
What may happen to you
What may be subjected upon you
But of not having that
Of not being guided in who you are
Of not being able to see all this can bring
All this can offer
All that you are
It’s the fear of going back
Back to what was before
Back to being less
Being as you were before
You have found your strength...Your fortitude
You have been shown you have far more
Than you ever knew was possible
So you fight with all your might
You refuse…Struggle…Plead to stay bound
To stay bound in the light
The light that now shines
The light that shows you all you are
Encompasses your very being
It is freedom…Hope…Promise
The lack of binds…Of going back
Of being free to be who you were before
That is not living…That is death…That is denial
The fear of not feeling...Of not being
Is far greater than the safety of being nothing
