When Light Breaks You Open

by Christina Hubbard

Only the strength of His light

Carries me through

Gray days.

Within this mortal cage

I expand

Until ribs cannot

Hold oxygen

One second

More.

Once I burst

Clean open.

A crack in the shell

Split under

Pressure.

When you see me next,

Brilliance might just

Blind you.

Where is light pushing its way out in you today?
