A step in the dark, as many believe.
Not able to understand what it is I perceive.
Drawn to the hope
that makes spirits soar,
another step forward, my hand on that door.

It's frightening,
and heightening my senses.
There are no more walls,
no more hidden fences.

So much to learn
not sure where to start.
No concrete structures,
just follow your heart

They tell me it's dark,
but outside the moon's bright.
So I'll step out of the dark,
and into the light.
a group I'm in is having a poetry reading, we could search for a piece, but they also suggested writing your own poetry. I'm only beginning my path so this is what I wrote.

This is really good.. I understand just how you feel. You make it rhyme without it sounding cheesey too! If that makes sense - that's a skill.
Good luck with everything! :)

That is absolutely beautiful. I guess I've had pagan beliefs for a while, but I've only recently gone public about it, and I too feel as if I'm just starting out. Anyway, this poem really speaks to me, great work. :)

I think it expresses beginnings wonderfully. :3 Specially the part about it 'being dark' but 'the moon is bright'. Good use of inerpriting perspectives there.
