A Light in the Shadows

I have a shadow over my heart

One that brings me sadness and pain

It appears randomly leaving me with a feeling of despair

This shadow desires something, yet I do not know what it wants

How is it among the strong I can feel weak

Amidst the brave I can feel frightened

With a path I still lose my way

How is it that we are able to endure such suffering and continue life?

The answer is bitter sweet

For every tear of sadness

There will always be a smile of joy

For every gasp of pain

There will always be a sigh of pleasure

For every death

There is life

For every shadow there is light

I had a shadow over my heart

But I have found my light
