Every prison has its chapel

Trapped in the prison
of your own dark thoughts?
Know this:
that every prison has its chapel.
Travel through the corridors
of your own dark stillness;
seek out that tiny room,
and find the spark within
that never dies.
Breathe steadily on that spark
until it flares;
now light a torch and carry it
back out into your life.*
