Radiance - Poem by Iskandar Zulqarnain Muhamad

The darkness shattered by the light of dawn
But never has the light been engulfed by the darkness of dusk
Reflected as starlight and moonlight
Like diamonds and pearls
In the velvet sky
Like your radiance
It never dies
It might dim
But never dies
For your heart is still young
It may be young but it is true
For it has felt the many emotions life offered
So trust your heart for it is right at times
But remember to think before you act
As the heart is sometimes irrational
You might see your true self reflected in the eyes of others
But don't always trust it
Because your radiance is your true self
So believe in yourself
And work for the best
And you will shine
Otherwise that magnificent radiance will fade away
There will be obstacles in the future
So always return to those close to you
For they might have seen your radiance
These are the people who would help you shine
And around them you shine the best

    i liked how the title of the poem is built on in the poem itself
    'Like diamonds and pearls
    In the velvet sky
    Like your radiance
    It never dies
    It might dim
    But never dies' a nice write
