The Dark - Poem by Jordan Josephson

I'm going from day to day in the dark,
I reach out blindly to save my face,
But neglected, however lightly, to lace
My fingers and close my arms.
A slim door got in past my guard,
And hit me a blow in the head so hard
I had my smile jarred.

And then I had a dream,
One so dark and dreary
Life had no meaning.
The sun was dead and gone
The stars had given up hope.
The night wandered on forever,
And life was free from all!
Why go on said the people,
Why try and push thru the dark?

Don't I said, it's all without hope,
But they wandered and traveled
Always in the dark. Never without hope!
Pushing on and past the rest
Seeing stars where none exists.
Why are we here, why push
They say and say but go on
And on without a sun!

I saw no point and saw no hope
Then slowly a pinprick cleared.
What is that my dreaming mind 
Declared in such a state.
Fearing the unknown
I shrugged and pulled my brow
Down further to block my sight.
I cannot see I do not hope.

But amidst my dreaming minds
Deathly rambles, a bigger glimpse
Did appear, doubt was quick to
Repulse the glimpse. 
Until one day the glimpse 
Fought the battle gallantly and won!

I did awaken from the dream
Quite surprised to be relieved
And Fresh from the dark. 
All light is not gone
Just fighting daily amidst 
The gray and gloomy clouds
That cast a diligent shadow 
On all residing in life!
