Daily Prompt: Silver Linings

image

Imagine darkness
Where you can’t decide whether to step your right or left foot first
Imagine darkness
Where your other senses heightened since you can’t see a thing
I bet you are afraid

Now, close your eyes
Open them again

Imagine darkness
This time with small twinkling lights above your head
Imagine darkness
Where the moon light traces the tip of your fingertips
I bet you are hopeful

For the last time close your eyes

And when you peek through them, though it’s dark, you have seen the world in a different perspective

Life may be dark, but every second is worth living!

Drowning in the shadows

image

At times I feel like drowning
There was nothing left to do
But to catch one last breath
And hope I can survive for a minute Another minute, an hour, days, or even months

I prayed hard that someone Will see me asking for help
And extend a hand
To save me from the mess I have created
As demons of my own continues to haunt me
But no one did
As I was about to completely surrender
I saw a tiny flicker of light, turned into fire
A blinding contrast of orange and yellow that seemed to burn my being
Hesitant at first, I forced to open my eyes

He was there
GOD was there

Flashbacks and realizations hit me all at once
I knew then I am the only one
Who can fight my own demons
See the true light
With His complete guidance
