Dark into Light
A Poem by Patrick Power
When I lived in the dark
I was so full of fear
I did not know what a proper home was.
I was so depressed when I lived in a doorway
With a shadow on the wall
And evil spirits in my heart and mind.
I had some hope in my heart
I got a home in Bray
It was a happy little home
Time has moved on and things are looking up
I am learning to enjoy life again
Family friends and staff,
and my community have been good to me.
And Love has struck me in my heart
I found her in a local club.
