Light into Darkness

Out of nowhere; the lights shattered Within a moment; the darkness has filled, My heart was no more; in a mood of lightness My life has suddenly; twisted and disappeared. It was like an abandon thunderstorm Came into my life and destroyed my destiny, I found myself in an isolated nightmare Where I was able to define reality. I clarified it as an empty hole Where it was filled with cold water, As a candy with a taste of bitterness And a war which never made it better. Though I wondered through years If the lights will appear again, It’s like living in a desert And wishing it could rain. At last I gave up and sat On the solid chair of torture, I’m still sitting and waiting If the darkness is ever going to departure.

    "It’s like living in a desert And wishing it could rain." I've moments of sadness and desperation when I feel the same. It is like living in a desert. It rarely rains. But, it rains anyway. Sincerely, your Ethiopian fellow
