Brighter Side

Brighter Side

The dark reveals no light, like pitch black standing alone with your fears.

The dark gives no warmth, like cold internal shudders holding back tears.

The dark has always been the dark, inversely with light it will always be tied

But light, light will always be light, or what I like to call the brighter side

This light and dark, it may be as simple as day and night

This light and dark, it may be as easy as flipping a switch to a room

This light and dark, it may be as plain as getting your coffee just right

But this dark and light, it may be the key to you choosing your doom

The light provides vision of things to see and things yet to be

The light chases away darkness and quells fears which don’t want you free

The light brings life to parts of you that you thought have once died

The light can do many things once you begin to see the brighter side

The dark can be endless, you can stay in it, even live there if you choose

But the light, the light gives warmth, it can even spread positivity if you decide

This light can chase away the darkness, if you stay in the light you cannot lose

Please, I beg of you, please always choose to look for the brighter side

Sometimes you have to go through darkness to reach the light

Sometimes you have to do wrong to learn what’s right

Sometimes the dark’s so dark you feel it’s taken your voice

But please, please realize that the brighter side is a choice
