The Fearless Dark

a poem

I used to fear the dark
until I realized it had always lived inside me
the feminine dark of the night sky
the still darkness of possibility and power

I used to fear the silence
until I realized it lived at my core
the silence of calm strength
the full silence where all sound is born
