Evolution Series: The Beast

The Beast

For a long time, I couldn’t silence the screaming in my head.

It wailed day and night, night and day.

Years passed while it ranted and raved, quieting occasionally in slumber.

After a while, I wrestled that wraith into a box where it remained my captive.

Its muffled screams blending into the soundscape – white noise humming and buzzing at the periphery of my mind like the foggy mist of last night’s dream.

One day, a maelstrom came along and unleashed The Beast.

It still howled, but I was not afraid.

I bore its presence and looked deeply into its abyss.

At some point, I recognized a speck of light moving steadily out of the darkness –

a tiny Firefly of Hope.

In spite of the din, I heard the soft, rhythmical beating of gossamer wings drawing near.

All at once, it was still and quiet.

In the vacuum of silence that followed the tiny light’s departure,

An echo resonated loud and clear –

 

“You are free.”

 

Does the echo resonate for you? Are you searching for the Firefly, trying to silence The Beast? Consider joining us.
