Darkness – Sassy She Oracle

Recently a friend shared the poem “Sweet Darkness” by David Whyte. I’m sharing it with you all as we come into the darkest time of the year. May it be a balm for your rough and tender places as it is for mine.

Sweet Darkness by David Whyte

When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone,
no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize your own.

There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your home

The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.
