to The Light - Poem by RIC BASTASA

to the light
we aim ourselves
away from darkness
we swear

but i guess
not too much light
in the same manner
that i do not
have so much of
this darkness

to both
we shall be blinded
let us settle
midway

to dusk let us toast
this drink
of gray

    Excellent expression. Our life offers things which may not be of our liking but we have to make adjustments. A positive attitude which calls for celebrating what comes our way. Thanks for sharing a nice poem.
