Light in the darkness

When you find yourself bereft
Of any belief in yourself
And all you unknowingly
Leaned on has fallen….

Steady yourself and see
That it is your own thinking
That darkens your world,

Search and you will find
A diamond-thought of light.

Know that you are not alone,
And that this darkness has purpose

John O’Donohue, For Courage (extract)
