Dispelling Fear of the Dark


By Toni Truesdale

Our shadows are connected symbiotically

To ourselves and to the light.

In internal battles

Linked to social roles;

We search all our lives to dispel

Carefully socially constructed fears.

As more deeply, archetypes;

Speak to us of

The most ancient of stories

We reenact mostly in dreams

That tell the truth of human history

In the symbolic language of myth.
