Darkest Days

Days are just like people.

as

they can’t all be perfect

but

they always try.

 

And just like us

they often fail.

They push and pull

and strive for more.

 

Blindly acknowledging

the many

closed doors.

 

But when we step back

we begin to see

that there’s so much more

then what appears to be.

 

The world

we live in

is colorful and bright.

but

you can’t

embrace the golden ray

of sunshine,

or the beautiful blue hue

of the sky,

if you’re unwilling to

find light

on the

darkest of days.

 

There is a

silver lining

another day

will come.

Just step back

for a moment

and sit

with

what’s been done.

 

Tomorrow is a

new day.

Another chance

to start anew.

So many

different colors

waiting

just for you.
