The darkness of black may haunt you,
But for me, it consoles my heart.
It is a sign of despair, I know,
But it means that hope isn't too far.
It signifies sadness, I know,
But then I see happiness, smiling at me, from afar.
It is dark, and lonely, an associate of doom,
And a glimmer of hope is thus valued.
It makes you feel there's nothing left now,
But wait, how can one lose when one's got nothing to lose.
This does mean that there's no turning back,
And all you can do is earn and yearn,
And try and strive to emerge as the victor,
With hurdles and hindrances which you have to shatter,
Justice and hope is all that now matter,
And the masses which once looked down upon your fate,
To celebrate your destiny, they'll bow, they'd gather.
