Ray Of Light


I was in darkness
And from eternity you came.
As a” ray of light” into
My life. Your light made
My darkness erase.
There was radiance all over
I fell in love!
I fell in love with your light..
Later I followed day and night.....
Without bothering my class, race,
Caste, status or the place where I
Belong. I embraced your light.
But soon I realized that
What am heading for is a new,
Eternal darkness.
I sense I took an erroneous path.
So I enquire you “why did you shower light on me?
Even though I belonged to darkness”.
You should have left me in
Darkness cause that is
The place where I belong.

    The poem begins with a ray of light and ends with darkness.
    But soon I realized that
    What am heading for is a new,
    Eternal darkness.
    Why and how so? (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
