The Light

I come into a place
where everything is floating
It is a dark place for me,
nothing will pass into my liking

The houses are haunted
and thorns are everywhere
It is like a dangerous forest,
all paths lead to nowhere

At first I am scared
and I want to run away
Creatures have different languages,
I don't understand what they say

Everyone seems grinning
Like they want to tear me apart
What else would I think and do
If I feel they would break my heart?

But I have nowhere to go
so I decided to take the risks
I am scared but there's little courage
I am gripping with my fists

With the flicker of hope I wander
to study the mysterious place
Bit by bit I learn something,
enough to cope within each phase

Until I find little creatures
that thriving on a haunted tree
When I stop nearer to them,
they seem so scared, so afraid of me

I feel that sadness, I am bothered,
why they're afraid, I'm just harmless
My little hands could do nothing,
I just want to watch them exist

But  suddenly one of them comes
closer and flies in front of me
I realize it want to be handled
so I open my hand and let it be

It settles down on my open hand
while I walk around, it is my light
And I'm thankful for the little lamp
now I have lessen my fright

A little light that gives me hope
it makes me strong and lessens my load
That tomorrow I can find the way
to get out of this darkest road...

feels like an epic ballad, fantasy in genre....

I think it is natural for us to be afraid in the darkest night we choose to journey upon, but along the way, deep within us believes that we'll find light along the way. Stranger place brings Unfamiliar light, so maybe that is why we are more curious to see and go towards that path more, and adapt... perhaps that is how we are as human, we explore, adapt and change for the better good of what we think is right... now i am talking in puzzel... haha, great piece pretty friend....

Nothing to fear except fear itself we tend to fear that which we don't understand rather person place or thing experience is the best teacher resulting from an open hand extended that opened the light of your mind nice explanation here Dhaye

It is inevitable for us to feel fear and anxiety as we get our of our comfort zones and began a journey to an unfamiliar territory. Yet, no matter how strange a place is, we can always find someone willing to guide us in the unfamiliar place. Finding a friend during dark hours is finding hope.

and just that slight slant of light can give us hope...
i like the turnaround in this write....dealing with the darkness and turning it into something cope-able.

Thank you so much, Sir!
That was a neat little fantasy poem, Dhaye and it almost became a story. Actually, you could make that into a short story I think. It showed a lot of imagination and you created a fae place that was both dangerous and magical. Metaphorically it spoke of how you can find a friend in the most unlikely of places and that sometimes this is all you need to see your way out of the darkness. Very well done!

Despite the fear and apprehension of the surroundings, that one little encounter did so much to alleviate the dark foreboding atmosphere!

Yes indeed friendships can be built in the most unlikeliest of places, faith and courage are virtuous qualities, and so well conveyed in this finely penned piece of poetry, splendidly written Dhaye !
