The thing that you look for

Every time you’re stuck,

Every time you are at a crossroad-

Each time you wonder about the dreams you had when you were little

And if they could still be real.

The time you feel a dark cloud hover over you

And the silent screams terrify you.

When the pain seems overpowering,

Hope like a far-fetched thing

And you feel yourself fading…

You close your eyes and feel the world around you:

The universe teeming with life,

The way the night magically turns to day,

The birds chirping and flowers blooming-

The mundane sweet nothings of nature,

The cradle of joy she wraps you with.

Reminiscing the moments of joy,

You hear the tiny voice within- you know you can create that joy again

And you find that thing you look for.

You know the road to choose

You know those dreams are real

You know where to find the sunshine-

The sunshine that is a salve to your pain

You found that thing you were looking for

You found it when you felt life- you found that radiance you were looking for

The radiance that always was, is and will be.

The radiance that is you.

And you gathered yourself and walked on to let that radiance shine.

The entire month of April, I am blogging from A2Z powered by #BlogchatterA2Z
