Beyond Darkness

These poems are dedicated to all those who have had passages of darkness in their lives.


I have no more tears left.
Only my heart is bereft
Of happiness and sunshine.
It is time to take a step,
To seek hope,
To take hold
Of my life,
Learn to take things in my stride.
It is hard, almost impossible,
To see the bright side.
I look around.
I see darkness abound.
But, what is there beyond the tunnel?
Is that a distant light
In the darkness of the night?
I reach out, it seems to recede.
I stretch, I stretch
And I touch
The beam.
The thin beam
Turns into a stream.
Again, I see hope.
Again, I feel bold.
I have crossed the dark threshold.
I am free.

My world

Step out of it
And look beyond
Into this bright, wide world.
Of happiness and light
Look at the aura of the vibrant sun rise,
At the birds that fly so high,
At the colors of the sky.
At the beauty of the night.
Hear the hum of the fireflies,
The soft swish of waves,
The rustling of the leaves,
And the murmur of the trees.
Feel the wind among the greens,
The fulfillment in the breeze.
Touch the water over the sand.
Race with the waves receding from the land.
Reach out,
Reach out to the skies
And say,
This world is mine.
Mine to hold,
To feel,
To conquer
To dream…
