DVAM Code-Purple: Day Seven

Leave the light on for me.
As I fall to your doorstep,
I will need your strength
And sanctity
When I cannot find my own.
I will breathe in,
And release what burden
Is not mine to hold.

Here, my voice will be heard.
I will find acceptance
Amongst others who know
To what lengths I have suffered.
I will gain knowledge,
And we will share it with others
Who will also be heard.
We will leave the light on for her.
