There is no shame
in being a cripple
when you walk
in the Light.
Sometimes walking may seem
more like crawling or shuffling
and pain comes with the struggling
but never give up walking in the Light.
Success cannot be measured
by distance or swiftness
but in moving forward with purpose
within the power of the Light.
If the darkness of the fight
consumes and overtakes you
it would be understandable
and for today it may seem easier.
But if you do not let
your weakness and helplessness
rob you of hope and blessedness
redemption will come by way of the Light.
