If you’re in a dark pit of emptiness,
yourself and the ground under your feet are all you’re certain of,

dont look up expecting to find light, don’t wait for sunbeams to shine through cracks and lead you to safety.

Get on your knees, put your hands to the ground.
Fumble, feel, scrounge through dirt, crawl, and dig!
In the darkness, look for rocks sticks anything.

Make a fire, make a light. Light your own way through darkness.

Do not expect salvation. Bring it to yourself.
