The Light – P4Y Poetry

There is a new youth who has been coming to art group recently.

I met him on outreach a few years ago and I discovered that from a young age he has been dealing with addiction and homelessness. Despite this, he possesses a great sense of humour, a strong connection to spirituality and to the world around him, and a deep rooted inner strength.

A few weeks ago he was in the music room writing on the chalk board.

This is what he wrote:

Madness looms overhead Like and eagle searching for prey Slow as a turtle, sure as death The path from darkness is long and painful twisting and turning to it’s hearts content. REMEMBER THE LIGHT is ALL-WAYS There.
