Stay With Yourself

Stay with yourself.
When the darkness is
impenetrable,
and the tendrils of anguish and loathing
wrap their damp coils around your neck.
Stay with yourself.
You’ll long to leave, tell yourself
there are better places to go
better people to be with,
better people to be.
Stay with yourself.
When boredom smells like mouldy shoe boxes
and your line of sight offers flat,
lifeless
nothingness.
Stay with yourself.
Even when a light flashes and inspiration
floods the landscape with blues
and greens
and purples
and your heart fills with delight.
Stay with yourself.
You can share it all
when it’s time
When you
and yourself
are both ready.
Stay with yourself
until you can step forward,
into the sun,
into the joy,
into the light,
and bring yourself.
