By Bella


Passages are noble entrances that pull us forth

to places we sometimes don’t dare to go.

We believe the door should be vibrant

but understand…

It is the dark passages that make us grow

if all of our paths were kind and beautiful

the heart could never weep tears into the soul.

and, therefore, the ground we boldly stand upon

would always be shallow.

Instead of the rainbow

God shows trinkets are often treasures

buried beneath the closets of our past

so when the hallway

dims to heartaches of blackness


It is only a passage

we must hold and humbly pass.
