Remain in Light

29 Dec

“Physical infidelity is the signal, the notice given, that all fidelities are undermined.” ~Katherine Anne Porter


Remain in Light

This message is for warriors
Who have a loved one who
Has done something so selfish that
It’s not just made them blue

This message is for warriors
Who feel they’ve been betrayed
By loved ones who could not resist
Their urges to get laid

They grew complacent, they got bored
They wanted something fresh
They squandered something deeper for
Relations of the flesh

They’ve left you angry, hurt, confused
And you feel your light fade
You feel there is a price for their
Selfishness to be paid

I’m here to tell you now the best
Advice you’ll ever get:
Remain in light, brave warrior
Don’t you dare get upset

They know that they have shown weakness
And their guilt haunts them now
They want you in their darkness too
So that you bend and bow

Hold your words of hatred and
Unclench your angry fist
Remain in light, do not hurt back
Revenge you must resist

Remain in light as you feel it
Does slip away from you
Remain in light and forgive how
They were weak and untrue

Be on guard, they’ll try to put
Some of the blame your way
Remain in light as you choose soft
And patient words to say

Let them writhe in turmoil as
They try to make some sense
Their ego tries to soothe their heart by
Going on defense

Remain in light and never say
Or do things you’ll regret
Remain in light and do not add
Yourself to their dark debt

Remain in light while you decide
Where you will go from there
‘Cause only in the light will you
Be able to repair

Or find the clarity to see
The new path you should take
Remain in light, brave warrior
For your own honor’s sake

    Dear Warrior,
    You have written this for cheating spouses / partners, I believe. As a survivor of rape and sexual abuse, I see this in a different light as well. I have had many women reach out to me who were raped by their own family members, and the words here to me ring true of their stories as well…. your words speak of the sadness they bear, and the urgent need to rise above their experience, in my eyes. Thank you for writing this.

    Very true, and an inspirational message. Remain in light, no matter what. It won’t be always easy to do that, but we never have to stop trying. Because that’s what is right. 🙂

    Thanks you for this. Learning and sharing are the best things in the world. 🙂

    Remaining in the light also gives you much better odds of seeing others who walk in the light, ne c’est pas?

I have said what I has been weighing heavily on my back, shoulder and neck for months now….and now that it is out there I can move on and be the one who remains in the light. thank you for the reminder for tomorrow and the rest of these days to come 🙂
