Darkness - Poem by Jefin Jo Thomas

When the night came and
darkness surrounded me,
I saw the birds returning to their nests
and making noises in fear.
Then my little brother,
who is always afraid of darkness,
run to me and said.
'please light a candle for me, brother'.
I lit the candle, and
I could see hid joyful face.
But, for me, darkness is more joyful,
as some other people will be enjoying light the same time.
Oh, god. Give me darkness for ever
and let my brothers be in light.
