To Drive the Darkness

 Sitting inside, at this dark corner and lamenting!
What prevents you from coming out of it?
Do you like to remain in dark, away from light?
Or the darkness wishes to be with you?

Turn your head from darkness to find light
Haven’t you seen the light at the gap of the window pane?
What prevents you from standing on your own?
Is it your legs or the lazy heart whispers to remain in dark?

Assumptions and accusing never going to help you
There is always a path to walk better, just plan
Inhibitions aren’t going to feed you, wipe it out!
There is always a place in your heart, never lose hope.

Look at the endless sky, it is amazing isn’t it?
The blue sky, the red sky: as it is nature’s order
Look at the birds, flying high in the sky
How lovely they are, with no worry they soar high.

Go out to find your resources, life has its riches.
Never stop learning, because it’s continuous!
Ideal mind never encourages being idle!
Drive darkness; turn your head towards the light!

                                                          
                                                                               A poem by Ayubkhan.U
