When darkness lingers all around,
And you see not a single ray of sun,
And it seems the clouds are after you,
Ready to engulf you in their stormy rage…
All you want is to run
And run till you leave the dark behind,
But you can’t, because it’s too dark
to see the path ahead.
And then you call for help
And someone comes to rescue-
Someone who’s always pulled you out
of the darkest of tunnels.
“Hand me a torch,” you say;
“Why?” they ask;
“Because it’s dark!” you say.
Isn’t that obvious?!
They look at you
And burst into a laugh,
And laugh and laugh
till they turn red.
“Why do you think it’s dark?” they ask.
“Because there’s clouds all around!” you say.
They look at you and laugh again,
And laugh till there’s tears in their eyes.
And before you could ask what’s funny,
They reach up and pull away the sunglasses from your face,
And laugh while you wonder
How the clouds vanished so fast 🙂
Sometimes, it isn’t the situations that are dark,
It’s us who shield ourselves from seeing the right path.
Make sure to keep someone around to snatch away your sunglasses 😉
