• Darkness and Light

    Smriti Gautam |
    Darkness and Light

    Lost in the shadow of giants

    Is the silhouette of a little man who

    Learns to live in darkness

    Searching his way past thorns and bushes

    While cherishing the sound of bees amidst the night’s silence,

    Falling and rising;

    Likes tides of sea,

    Ending and renewing;

    No matter the weather, continuing,

    Failing and succeeding;

    No matter the defeats or victory, ever growing,
    Befriending the dark

    While seeking the light

    Knowing not the source of darkness

    But certainly the joy of light.
