    {There is a darkness that consumes positive energies, while delivering nothing good. In order to get beyond the pain and suffering and years of yesterday’s fears…and all the tears the darkness will cause you to shed, you must embrace the light}

    In the midst of
    The swirling mist
    That is…DARKNESS
    Shone a single point of light

    A ray of hope
    For the oppressed
    …the directionless

    A beacon
    For lost souls
    Who can’t find their way
    …who refuse to say
    HELP ME.

    {or, so I’m told}

    There is a bright light
    Surrounded by darkness
    …a happiness
    Embraced by all

    What is this?
    The light might ask
    But the darkness stands
    Still…still…still
    Lurking in the self-defeating twilight
    That is us

    Yet, in the midst of such darkness

    There is a joy
    No one may conquer
    …a smile
    That brightens each day

    There is a laughter
    That sings a melody
    …a twinkling eye
    That touches deep within

    There is a bright light
    Surrounded by darkness
    …a happiness
    Embraced by all

    There is a smile
    Surrounded by sadness
    And fears
    And pain
    Released in the form of
    SO MANY tears
    And, yet
    The smile remains

    There is a bright light
    …surrounded by darkness

    Everyone embraced it

    The light.

    There was a brightness
    Surrounded by darkness

    Yes.

    There is a happiness
    Embracing us ALL.
