Darkness And Light

As darkness descends,
sometimes in my life,
or perhaps often-times,
I wonder about my fate,
Yet, I reflect on things,
try to find meaning and light.

There were moments,
I lost my ambitions,
gave up on my dreams,
I anticipated failures,
Yet, the Almighty never-ever
gave up on me and showed me the path.

With all the manifold
life’s experiences that
I have had to go through,
I have come to believe,
that if there is darkness lurking around,
there is also a lovely glint of light everywhere.

It is just a glint, but it is
enough to light up the darkness.
If there is chaos, sadness, and despair.
there is also calm, happiness and optimism,
My yearning for knowledge, light, and positivity
will never diminish despite this unknown mystery of life.

I’ve learned not to lose hope,
Never to yield to the darkness.
If there ever is a difficulty today,
there is a tomorrow or a day after,
that the light will certainly return,
to illuminate my insecure but beautiful world.

{{There has been a mysterious interplay of light and darkness in my life, but that is what life is all about. I am sure most of us either understand this rather quick or take time. Nonetheless, we do understand and learn to live life with all our earnestness. We enjoy life with all optimism.}}

“The dance between darkness and light will always remain — the stars and the moon will always need the darkness to be seen, the darkness will just not be worth having without the moon and the stars.” ― C. JoyBell C.
