    Bright Light and Possibilities


    It has been dark for so long
    The air has been heavy and oppressive
    It’s been difficult to hold ones head high
    Every day negativity oozed everywhere
    Like a heavy weight
    Everything became hard

    Possibilities

    In spite of it
    People kept trying
    People kept helping
    People kept caring
    Though they were tired
    But hope was diminishing
    Getting fainter

    Possibilities

    But, after some time
    A small sliver of light shone through
    In the darkness, it seemed even brighter
    People began to focus on it
    Watch it
    Fascinated
    They then started walking towards it
    The closer they came, the brighter it became
    Almost like a lighthouse beacon
    The light was soothing
    It was also healing

    Possibilities

    Eventually the light increased
    Shining down everywhere
    Causing the darkness to finally recede
    Hope grew
    Faith grew
    The heaviness lifted

    Possibilities

    For the first time in a long time
    People saw possibilities
    They actually started to see the people around them
    Their neighbors, friends, co-workers
    And they were also seen
    They talked and were heard
    They listened and understood
    Empathy started to grow
    Care for one another grew
    It was a brand new day

    Possibilities
