Seek and Destroy

Years of digging;
extricating evil,
untrapping the trapped,
releasing the imprisoned –
barbed remnants of shrapnel
left behind
to travel through veins.

A shaft of light enters
to cut through the darkness
as a sword
of past, present, and future;
the bearer of pain,
ushering destruction –
searing its path.

Scars are reminders
of pain overcome.
