OctPoWriMo Day 31

Standard

My goal for OctPoWriMo this year was 16 poems, one on every odd-numbered day. I’m happy to say I only missed one, for a total of 15 poems.

Today’s prompt is light, dark, and shadow. The form is a new one for me, parallelogram de crystalline.

Embrace the light
  
 darkness reigns
 unworthiness shames me
 I hide among the shadows cold
  
 ostracized
 my only protection 
 is silent invisibility
  
 spark ignites
 hope and love surprise me
 writing me a new biography
  
 I step forth
 boldness overcomes fear
 I embrace the light, defeating dark
