I've got my GCSEs coming up (for non-British people, they're huge examinations that can choose your future), and I'm drifting through emotions. The only thought now that keeps me going is that after it is all over, I can take deep sighs of relief and know that for now, a taxing milestone in my life is over. This inspired me to write Light Thereafter.
Life is a wonderful thing;
This cannot be ignored
Each and every one who shares it
Treasures something hallowed.
But in this ocean of soft white light
There is also darkness.
Many times in one's life,
The eyes will be blinded,
And will not see the beauty.
Shadows of despair will smother them,
Wreath them in sorrow.
In this darkness, a light is hard to kindle
Yet it always returns,
To save the lost soul from the abyss.
Life has its toils, yes,
Toils of love and anger, despair and hope
But you are not forgotten,
For there is light thereafter.
