Light After Dark

For a long time,
I have been afraid.
Of being in the dark,
Without a way.

Why is it that I can’t find a way,
Why is it that I can’t see a way.
My heart burnt with rage,
My mind drifting away.

I suddenly,
See a dim light.
My heart rejoicing,
In the glory of night.

And then,
The answer strikes.
In a moment,
It is clear as a bright sky.

My mistake so obvious,
So childish when I realized.
It’s not so much to do with the world,
Rather it’s what I should have done in a way.

Long it’s been, I felt,
Since the time I sensed light.
Long it’s been, I felt,
Since the time I sensed warmth

For the way ahead in the dark,
Is not easy my friend.
For the only way ahead,
Is to keep on pursuing my friend.

With this I say to myself,
That after dark is light.
Because I will always be in the dark,
Before I see the world in the full glory of day.
