The Light That Shone Through - Poem by Hafza Ali
I think I spent a lifetime thinking about what happened, contemplating what to do next, how to ‘get over it’. But that is the thing with pain, you cannot possibly get over it, it stays with you, sometimes you feel as if you should give up and live a mediocre life but darling you were destined for greatness, you can’t and won’t give up, you have to use your pain as a fuel so when all the motivation speeches don’t work, when you don’t think you could live another day, remember when you were down and out what you wished for and only then would you truly do anything you set your mind to. My pain which made me feel all alone, sad and suicidal is what is keeping me alive today and making me write these words, because every night has a day and every storm has a rainbow. You will see the line shine through the most extraordinary places my darling.
