Hope

I came across the lovely poem sometime back which touched me deeply. Today’s quote reminded me of these lovely words

Darkness gathers around my being 
Filling me with dread 
The only voices to be heard 
Are the ones inside my head 

I cannot see what’s straight ahead 
I cannot hear them call 
Pure blackness overwhelms me 
I must stop me from this fall 

Slowly I manage a stumble 
I must leave this tunnel behind 
I need to escape this darkness 
I have to clear my mind 

Ignoring the voices in my head 
They start to scream and shout 
I will not surrender 
I know I must get out 

Faster now I pick up pace 
My walk becomes a run 
Something in the distance shines 
Have I finally found the sun? 

The end of the tunnel approaches 
I have made it at last 
I tried so hard to reach it 
And leave the darkness in the past 

As my eyes adjust to this new light 
I stand in complete awe 
People still surround me 
Why hadn’t I noticed that before? 

The world is lit so brightly 
For the sun is shining down 
Light makes such a difference 
A smile replaces my frown 

I do not move 
I watch and listen 
With this new found light 
Things start to glisten 

Day turns to night 
Yet I am still here 
The sun slowly sets 
But there is no longer the fear 

Out comes the moon 
A bright light fills the night sky 
Millions of stars twinkle 
Shining down from up high 

The truth is that darkness 
Can blind one and all 
We must all look for the light 
No matter how small 

I have discovered my own light 
Deep down inside 
I can see, I can hear 
No longer must I hide 

Light is around us 
Wherever we may be 
Its just not always obvious 
Not always there to see 

There is ALWAYS light at the end of the tunnel
At the end of the tunnel it is bright
Don’t sit and suffer in darkness
Speak out and reach for the light
