In the Darkness - A Poem


A Poem

When the sun goes down
and the night arrives
remember to look
to the stars
and gaze upon their beauty.

Realize that the night sky
is a reflection
of all the souls
that exist in the cosmos.

And in life we all go through
times when the sun sets on us
and we are left in the dark.
We might feel as though
we’ll never see light again,
but eventually we will.

So I promise you this:
you don’t go unnoticed
when you’re in darkness.

But when you find yourself
in the dark
use that chance
to show off
how brightly you can shine.

For there is a light
that resides in each of us
and it shines brightest in the dark.
