Darkened Room

My past is a darkened room,
mysterious, black, with pain.
The little girl stumbles around,
falling and tripping in vain
because there is no light to guide
her naive, innocent feet
in the straight path, true and good.
She cries, overwhelmed by defeat.
Then suddenly, ten years along,
a friend opens the door
of her dark room to shine a light,
the light of truth Abba has in store
for her in His plan and will;
the little girl blinks, confused.
She groans and cries in the hurt
that it brings; she does not understand
how good the light will be in the end.
But then she notices she can see
the obstacles in her path
and the glimpse of light begins to seem
appealing to the little girl at last.
