Dark Corners

Dark Corners

A Poem by Allen Smuckler



















to pay it forward, be true

it's not all about you

but being part of the test

make us happy  

place a smile on our face...

 

…and equally important, we share the good. The small things that allow us to smile or feel warm in our hearts...simplify what we can… if you will.

...gloriously, anyone can do it, just sit  for a couple of minutes, take a breath, and look around or reminisce....so easy to see, love is...:)  all around us…find  a friend or stranger...and let them in on it...

 

 take the time to lean on each other            

                

                  btw...

 

dark places are only corners

of our minds where the light

hasn't quite crept in yet...

so stick out your tongue,

notice all that is good and

taste the beautiful dawn...

I love the last verse. I agree that we should not be that pessimistic so that we could be happy. Dark corners are our dark thoughts...

Oh yes! This is adorably done :) Each poem I read of yours is always paved with wisdom and insight...how else can we love if we do not allow love for the self? How else do we find light if we do not address darkness, everything is such a tenderly poised balance that we have to nurture in order to find a smile on the new dawn or to be a comfort to others!
Remarkable poem, blessed to have read it xoxo
