Light and Darkness

It is not darkness alone
That makes a thing to hide
For a thing may also hide
Even in the brilliance of light.
Let us take for instance
Billions of twinkling stars,
Don’t they sparkles in the night
And shies away in the sunlight?
So when thing can hide, my friend,
Even in the brilliant of the day,
Should we not seek guidance
From stars that at night find their way?
