Darkness And Light - Poem by Narayanan Kutty Pozhath

I was afraid of darkness
I prayed to light to save me.
Light told it never had seen it.
I promised light to take him
to the fear personified darkness.
Light came with me
I took light to every corner
of the mind to show the darkness.
However I failed to find
darkness whenever light
was with me.
I asked him to wait and
went alone to see the frightening
darkness.
Darkness was there
in every corner of mind.
However whenever light
was with me, I could not
see darkness.
I decided to stay with light.

Topic(s) of this poem: darkness, fear, light

    Darkness was there
    in every corner of mind.
    However whenever light
    was with me, I could not
    see darkness........touching expression with nice theme. Light is positive attitude where as darkness is negative. A beautiful philosophical poem shared astutely.10

    Hello Narayanan,
    I am happy to read your poems.
    An analysis of light and darkness through this poem is most effectively utilised as a personal
    dialogue between the two. When the mind is weak darkness dominates but
    light is so powerful that it covers every dark corner with its brilliance. A full score of 10
