Not So Dark
In the middle of the night
When everything is dark around you
All you have to do is turn on the light.
But what about in the bright sun of day
And everything around you is dark
How then do you find your way?
How can your world feel so dark
When you have so many reasons to feel thankful
The dark seems to be in your heart.
What have you seen that you don’t understand
And why does it trouble you so
You wonder what is the rest of the plan?
There seems to be more inside than you can handle
You feel like you are stumbling around
Then someone hands you a lit candle.
The candle shines of hope
It begins to enter your heart
It’s just enough to help you cope
