This post is the result of mingling thoughts about light and darkness . In fact, it started with the memory of my father telling me not to fear the darkness when I was a child and scared after waking up from a bad dream. He would turn on the light and say to me “As long you look for light the darkness will not harm you , you are a child of the light”.
Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness
Now there are of course all kinds of darkness , not only the one when we go to sleep at night. No, there also the dark times which sadly enough come with life as well. And despite of all we have to keep up our hopes and believe better days will come , not to give up nor to give in. Easier said than done, is it not? Especially in the midst of all we have to deal with nowadays.
A couple years ago I wrote a poem about not giving up on love, however the message is more or less the same. Don’t give up on hope!
Sail ever the ship of faith
don’t steer hope into waste
to die on a darkened shore
where hearts no longer soar.
In the midst of darkness, light persists.
Keep strong, keep safe ❤
