A life


Light!
You flash through the darkness
The black shadows rush at me
I fight and spark
To make me free

Darkness!
You protect very often
The laughing buds in the bush
Your silence makes me soft
All the stars smiling like frush

Oh!
I want light to find
My ways and means
In the innocent darkness
I am induced in dreams

    Darkness is the womb of light. When you are in darkness the light of your soul blinks. You really feel that you are within you.Thanks tapas for sharing it. (Report) Reply

    Darkness in life can lead towards lots as it depends on an individual how they interpret it. Ones with positive thoughts would try and convert darkness into ray of hope which will hold plenty dreams. This poem is nice liked reading it. (Report) Reply
