Rays of light #BARWoWe




When long periods of night
descend on paths unknown
keep going anyway
It's just a matter of time

Clouds of darkness 
that seem like an eternity
are sent way scurrying
with the first rays of light

In stealth always
daybreaks arrive
Working their way 
slowly first, a simmering fire
to restore faith, they aspire

flushed with passionate rage
Dawn bursts into flames
slaying demonic vestiges
defeating despair

    1. Indeed, Ramya. The moment you lose hope and faith, it becomes difficult to live life happily.

  7. There is always dawn waiting at the end of the dusk. We need to understand the lesson and keep moving, no matter what. Lovely poem, Uma.

    1. We are so anxious to find the light at the end of the tunnel then sometimes we give up just before dawn. I keep reminding myself that we need to keep going and that's what is truly expected of life. Thanks, Maliny!
