Darkness

*A random click

When there’s darkness
I know there will be light
You only know it’s dark
because you’ve seen the light
Light guides us
through the dark
But darkness shows us
Who we really are

    1. Thanks for reading, Om.
      You see throughout childhood we are told how we should be and yet rarely we are taught about our real self. We are taught how to function outwardly, but no one tells us who we are internally. We go from innocence and wonder of childhood to confusion in adolescent that often end in cynicism and disillusionment in our adulthood.
      Somedays we don’t feel like talking to anyone and just lie in the bed and think. That dark period is both a blessing and curse. You can use it to understand yourself more maturely or you kill yourself in its pain. I was trying to contrast both the periods of our life – the happy and the sad one. Both are equally important and we should cherish them.

    I truly loved the last two lines. One has to experience a prolonged and painful struggle through many unfortunate circumstances to understand this piece of art which is layered with beautiful and sublime language! 😍

    1. Thank you🌻 Actually I feel blessed to have dark days. These are the days our senses awaken and revitalize themselves. Days when we focus less outward and more inward on caring for our whole selves. They make me self-aware and win those hypothetical battles with myself.
