Light of Darkness

Light of Darkness

A Poem by Creepy Swine Guy
"

Enlightenment often comes when we least expect it.

"














Daylight keeps us in the dark.

Only in the darkness of night

Do the stars make themselves known.

Only in this “darkness” do we ever

Contemplate the vastness of the

Universe in which we live.

 

By day, we are blinded by the light, and

Do not see the sextillions of other suns.

We see no others. There is only us.

By day we are sole inhabitants

Of maximum import. But by night,

We look up and realize that we are but

A single grain on an immense beach.

We embrace our insignificance.

 

With the darkness … comes enlightenment.

Within darkness is the awakening of insight and of the depth to our souls. We fear it in the light because of the vastness which we might see, but in the darkness we can see only so much before we realize the inevitability of being overwhelmed.

nice work!

We often forget the immense detail of our universe and how small a part of it we actually are. There is so much out there we are yet to discover. Very nice poem.

Yes the universe in vast and we are only a blip on the screen. This piece brilliantly drives this home ... Some wonderful phrases here.. Sextillions of other suns, sole inhabitants of maximum import ... Straightforward philiosphical words here, CSG... GBU
