The Dark Night

The world is covered by darkness We look for the light in the night Darkness hides everything We can't see where we're going Look up at the stars Little by little, they are faint lights Scattered thousands of miles away Can't bring us to hope bright Lights in the near and far Tearing the darkness into a net The cold wind is blowing in Awakening the body power To resist the confusion inside Sigh! the world is so big But we are so small Our hearts are so big But our strength is so small The helplessness of life is becoming A lingering embarrassment sigh Habitat as this makes wishes cry How can we realize the ideal? To make our lives flowers alike Stretching in the breeze And smiling in the sunlight

I enjoyed the last stanza the best. It seems the longing for "better" echoes... The whole piece is lovely. Wonderfully written. Ann
