Dear Enemy

By Mali Papirany

Dear Loneliness, you were my only company.
You were there with me,
A presence I could never feel or see.
I trusted you to stick with me;
Though I'm glad you left
Because now I'm free
Of what God hadn't blessed
Dear insignificance,
I found my importance.
I was so used to the lies you fed,
And into the pain I was led
I thought it was my home
And now you have left me all alone,
Comfort has found me
Dear Emptiness, without you I've been fulfilled.
I'm a new person, I've found a new will.
Dear darkness, you have forgotten how to shine
I'll find a light, a new hope will light up your sky
Dear enemy, I bid you goodbye
