Crucible

You brought me
To the crucible
Melted me down
Forged me
Remade my being
Stronger than before

My words flow
From my fingers
To honor my hurt
And my weakness
As life’s necessary
Balance and polarity

The light cannot shine
Without the Shadow beside it
There can be no life
Without death to redeem it
Love cannot grow
Without pain to sanctify it

I am now made whole
