"The Light in the Dark"

"When the Darkness in your Soul seems too much to bear, let Love be your Light."

Entraped by my own self conciousness,
in the darkness I lie,
fragile, broken, and scared.
Will this be where I die?
No! For in the dark
there is a light,
to guide me through
this horrid night.
If all else fails,
I'll find my way,
through the dark,
into the day.

I'll claw my way out,
as I breathe in deep.
No wounds too painful,
no blood to seep.
I've fought till the death of hope,
and I've always lost before,
but the light shines bright this time.
I'll make it to that door.
Break these chains that bind me,
knock down those walls that you hold up,
because the light in the dark I see
is Love.

OUTSTANDING! Not only beautiful poetry but beautiful insight! Without the dark, we would have no concept of the light! Life is all of this. It's how we deal with it that makes the difference. Sounds like you have the right idea!! Great hub!!

..you are the 'light' in my 'dark' ...and the reason why I just don't jump in the lake (ahead of me - at Erie, here!) and not swim back - heck and I can't even swim - but I do like SWIMMING in your hubs ........

This is what I keep telling myself. Find the light in the dark, keep fighting. Clawing, never giving up.

I really like this. You're a romantic sort of writer.

Very nice.

Love does help a lot, and the best kind of love is the love that you have for yourself. It's the strongest light there is.

Love is the blanket, and we are all just looking for a good nap. Good work, keep writing!

Thanks Phillydreamer and Danieltastic. Yes Love is definitely a raft to hold on to when the rest of the world is drowning. Its very important to love ourselves first, for how can we expect anyone else to if we cant?
