psalm 43: the shadows you cast

whenever the deep darkness
rolls in my first instinct is always
to lift my eyes and look off
into the distance, hoping your
light will eventually guide
my steps home.

i’m not looking outward
anymore, though, i’m not
waiting for you to illuminate
the way, no, i’ve decided to
turn my gaze around and
go deep within.

true, it’s a much darker road,
but i know i’ll find the
right path if i stop searching
for your light and just follow
the shadows you cast
along the way.
