Darkness & Light

How best to address an unyielding mind,

When anxiety has, by its design,

Crippled this creature – in the face of action –

Struck with such feelings this beast needs traction,

Like the rubber of a new wheel meeting road,

Though still feeling the undeniable weight of a load

Of mental baggage being carried around

By this beast of burden covered in its shroud.

 

Anxiety, it falls like a shadow, and casts night over this weary land

As the darkness spreads like an approaching, outstretched hand

Reaching for coat’s lapel, to drag us down to our own personal hell.

The noblest aim is to resist its force, this demon wants to close all doors

That lay open in our ‘minds’; the infinite junction that leads to the world;

And beyond…. to all space and time!

 

When the sun does fail to shine, and grant us feelings most sublime,

This is where we lose our light, and so then there descendeth night

Into the world in which we live, or in which we fail – to really give

The best of ourselves that we know is there, but when we’re overcome with fear,

Fighting back our woeful tears, in response to all that’s wrong with life

Those dark times: when we are all but overcome with strife.

 

Strengthened in our resolve we need to be to duly solve

All the problems that life does bring – how to react –

Are we going to mope, or sing!?

To be overcome is to detract

From all the more than we should be

Through embracing joy, endlessly.

 

So we must be our own Sun: to light the world and continue on!
