In The Dark - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

The lights are gone
we are in the dark
the world will not see
when the sun goes down

We have no one to blame
but ourselves
we ruined what we had
and destroyed
what God had left

    my people Iranian guys during the history they always had blamed others rather to blame themselves for their mistakes and lags.we have to blame ourselves first then blame others with a definite vision.

    Darkness exist when you prevents the entry of light. But light is there, out side, waiting for your turn. Is up to us let it come in or not. (Report) Reply
