“My heart is light”


There is no black hole where your heart should be.

There is no lack of love.

This is not possible.

Even on your darkest day,

Even at your lowest and blackest moment,

There is a light within your heart.

It is not an empty cavern.

It is not a void.

Think of your heart as a clay pot,

Pierced with holes from which

The light of love can shine.

Casting its pattern

Over the walls and ceiling

Of your life.

This is because the dark and the light

Interact to create beauty.

To create the pattern of your life.

Without the dark moments

The light of your heart

Could not cast its beautiful shadows.
