I See the light

No matter how hard I tried
I couldn’t see the light because I was blind.
Blind to the truth like everyone else,
I believed what was told, even though it made no sense.
I had fallen deep within the darkness of my own mind
Desperately searching for something to help me climb.
I fought with all my might
But it just wasn’t a fair fight.
Being broken inside, I had to give in
So I surrendered my will to win.
Just before the darkness seized control
It showed me the light and the truth untold.

What would you prefer?
A sweet lie or the bitter truth as it were,
A dressed up demon of life or the bare angel of death
It doesn’t matter because I will tell you about both.

Life is an enchantress trapping you with her spells,
Death is the saviour who breaks those threads.
The first breath of life starts with a painful cry,
But as you draw you last breath, the pain subsides.
With life, everyday is a struggle and each day a new fight,
While death brings you the ultimate peace and quiet.
Each day of life comes at a great price,
However, death never demands any kind of sacrifice.
I need not tell you that life is unfair,
But you should know that in the eyes of death all are the same.
You hold on to your dear life but she doesn’t care,
You fear death yet he patiently waits for you in there.
Everyday you live brings you closer to death
You see she has already sold you ahead.

I have seen the light and so I accept the truth
I refuse life and all its abuse.
I accept death like he accepts me
He saves me from life and finally I am free.

    1. i agree… the message in the poem is that your perception is everything. if you want to see good in sumthing even something horrifying as death will seem good and if you want to see the bad then even a beautiful life looks ugly… dont change the circumstances change your view.
