Day 9 Poem a Day Challenge

Good Morning Everyone! I hope someone, somewhere is enjoying some sun.

Today’s prompt – Searching for something

 

Searching for the Light

 

All our lives we are searching for the light

We live our lives in the dark hoping for just one moment in the sun

When that moment comes we raise our face to the heavens,

out stretch our arms and soak it in

So bright we can not see

but can not look away

For all too quickly the light is gone

and we are plunged back in to the dark

We continue to search day after day for those moments of light

Once we have experienced the light we must have it

There is nothing else like it

We must find it

When we think we see a glimmer we scramble and claw our way to it

Not caring what or who might get in our way

We are all consumed by the search for the light

Knowing it is out there in the world waiting to be found, to be claimed

To claim it as our own

To hold it tight

The light lifts us up and takes us away from our everyday

The promise of a better moment in time

To be out of the dark

The cold and pressing dark bringing us down

But the light raises us up and makes us whole

Keep searching for your light

For we can never stop

 

Well there you have it. My attempt at Searching for something. Have fun with your poem today and I hope to see it posted here.

Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow.
