Defy or Define

Defy or Define

A Poem by Anjeline

When the whole world seems to approach twilight,
Only one glim can also defeat the gloom by burning bright
When your life seems to be on track with happiness radiating out a magnificent light,
Only one glim can defeat you by changing your happy days in a gloomy night.
Lost in a abhorrent land, when you are surrounded by beasts of prey
Just a glim can also save you from going astray
Leaving you depressed when life brings you at a point where out of your cherished ones you can choose only one,
Just a glim can also destroy you with it's will-o'-the-wisp burning bright like a delusional sun.
When a writer leaves you with these lines wondering where is this glim
All she hoped was, you'll search it in your heart's brim
None but a glim can defy or define darkness,
Only you can uplift yourself when life leaves you in a mess.
When life throws challenges, people embarrassment and failures humiliation at you,
Just burn this glim, defy the negativities and let yourself Define you.

Glim - candle
Will-o'-the-wisp - a deceptive fire

Thank you so much for such a sweet comment:)
Ah' I am delighted... Not only that... I have learnt new word in Glim... although tis easy to see how the candle got its name.... Yes indeed it is those glims that can make or break a day a life a dream a hope and so many more things besides.... A long awaited but nevertheless much enjoyed post my friend.... Neville
