Dark Touch

All young years seem to begin

With celebration and

With hope for

The new cycle,

The new light;

But they must all find

Their own Yom Kippur,

Their own prayer in the dark,

Their own atonement day;

For we do not simply go forward

Into the light; Rather

We learn better

To live with the darkness

In our midst.
