Inside a cave

Inside a cave

All my life I’ve been inside a cave

peeping at the world through tiny holes

thinking that it was enough to know all there was to discover


How very wrong I was

as I journeyed through a forest of stalactites and stalagmites

my perspective on the world kept on shifting, new colors adding to the old ones I knew

old colors that weren’t quite the same as I came closer


And yet, as my surroundings and my understandings changed

there is one sole thing that has never changed

and it is the light of my heart, this light I can use to make sure my eyes don’t betray me
