When in darkness


Night without darkness,
Is doing the same as,
Day without sunlight,
Both light and darkness,

Need each other,
To guarantee the cycle of life,
Day and night, summer and winter,
Draw together the years of anxiety and grief.

Along the road of darkness,
Time is paved with experience,
Encounter frustration, hurt and lost,
Love grows with the help of grace.

When in darkness,
Dreams follow life's embrace,
In the fertile seed of rest,
The mind takes healthy shapes.

When in darkness,
Don't look at heights or size,
Treat the imposers as a natural guest,
Listen to the stillness and be wise.

When in darkness,
Be confident in all matter,
The same thing that produce darkness,
Will eventually become clearer.

Hold to unchanging hope,
And rise from obscurity,
To tread the slippery slope,
And find your own security.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
