Overcome the Dark

Light may make things bright
But darkness is the real light
Once you have overcome the dark
You never need to hide

For those who fear the dark
Ready to eat you up are many a shark
But if you go on and defy the odds
You will surely make a mark

You may bask in the glory of achieving something
But someday you may lose everything
But once you have failed
You learn to live with anything

You will have your days
But sometimes failure will make hay
But if you are strong enough
You will make your way

Very positive and true too I guess!esp liked 'Once you've overcome the dark,you never need to hide'.Most of the failures happen because of the 'fear of failure' only.

By being willing to share what you write, it seems to me that you are living out the message in the poem. A willingness to share is one of the most important steps in "overcoming the dark."

I usually find difficult to understand the full extent of what a poem conveys..

But I found yours easy to understand..

simple words yet so powerful a message :)

liked it :)

Wow! I love your point of view :)
Really, failure is important. It makes success taste even sweeter!

Well written buddy. All the best!

Hello! Glad to have visited. Completely agree with your take on it. Nobody would have appreciated the goodness of light w/o knowing what darkness is all about! What pushes us to darkness is the fear and uncertainty. It's better to live one moment at a time than worrying way too much. Nice job! Cheers! Good luck!
