A chink of light

It rains
It pours
Clouds come
The sky darkens
The thunder
The lightning
The storm comes
It feels it will never end
Another downpour…again
The rain comes more and more
Darkness, cold
And yet always there’s a break in the clouds
The sun weakly comes
Then finally the sky opens and the sun shines through
There is always a chink of light
Wait for it
Believe it will come
Hope wins

A glimmer

The bottom is a dark place
The bottom is lonely
The bottom is rock bottom
The bottom feels forever
The bottom is a place we all come to
The bottom is an empty jar
The bottom is an ugly scar
Yet there in the dark is a glimmer
A glimmer of light
A glimmer of something
A glimmer of a chance to rise again
Nothing is forever
Nothing is always dark
Never give up
There is always a glimmer of hope
If we choose to believe
There is always someone there
There is a glimmer
And that is all we need
