the dark night of the soul & other types of sacrifice

I read once about the dark night of the soul
In some cases I think the dark night is bound with the soul
And only in hope’s continual breaking 
will you ever reach thru the dark to the surface
Some ties are meant to bind and some ties…
that we think will steady really pull us under & over
I shuddered to break those ties, but too often they weaken me
I don’t claim to be anything more or less than you
And I see each human as an equal until character proves them…
Nothing in me wants to harm you but I have to live by rules I set
though I am only now learning what it means to fully enforce them… in my self
