Hold on to the light

All the things, you have seen,
All the things, you had to endure,
Has all together mold you,
Into an abyss of pessimism.
And you cling to the darkness,
As if it’s your only safe-house,
But I want you to open your eyes,
To the light that’s all around you.
I know it is not at all easy,
When light has only betrayed you.
Every flicker of hope, glimmer of light,
Has proven to be so evanescent,
Pushing you further and further deeper,
Into a never ending chasm of pitch black.
Oh yes, dear, I do know,
Your life has been a nightmare.
I salute you, my dear survivor,
You’re stronger than you know.
And I know you’re scared to hope,
Or embrace the light around you,
But dear survivor, I’m begging you,
Let go of the darkness you hold.
For once, embrace the vibrant light,
While I know it’s transient ,
You deserve happiness for once.
And while the night will come for you,
I want you to fight it off,
Vehemently, like the warrior you are.
I wish to see a big bright smile,
Replacing your ever-present scowl,
I’ll spot the fake one right away,
I want the real and happy one.
Goddammit! Stupid man!! Be happy for once!!!

Rashmi, how is this for positivity? Lol! I promise to write a happier one soon.

  1. No matter how hard the darkness holds on to you
    Know you can fight your way out into the light-
    Your rightful place that’s ever bright…i love the motivational message behind the poem

    So so wonderful. Effortlessly beautiful. I have been reading your works and oh they hit hard. How strong and how powerful are those words of yours. I feel honoured to be reading your poems. They have this certainty about them and it keeps me wondering how deep is this work of yours. I’m truly inspired by your work. So truly said ‘ be happy for once…’ I guess the world has forgotten to smile, but your works as dark and deep as they are make me want to embrace life and live it to its fullest. Loads of peace and greetings from Sui generis. Have a wonderful day ❣️. Look forward to hearing from you!!! Thank you once again for taking us readers with you on this adventure of words. Peace 💛💛💛
