Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge.
This week we are asked to explore the concept of light and dark. Does being in the dark bring out our fears or does it work as the opposite?
When we are in the light, everything is bright
Life goes smoothly and there aren’t any obstacles
But do we value and appreciate this ease we are granted
Or is it considered our Devine right to be blessed with light
Suddenly the tables are turned for one reason or the other
The light is swallowed whole by a dark cloud looming on the horizon
We are unable to see or perceive our path ahead and fall into a pit
The darkness is our enemy, our foe, which prevents our progress
It is in the darkest hour that we discover or strength and resolve
When we seem to reach the end of our tether that we realize that
There is just not one road that leads to our destination but several
It is really true that in our darkest hour, we discover what we are made of
Neither is the light our right nor is the dark our enemy
Both are the two sides of the same coin, we call life
Both have a purpose in this grand scheme that we call the universe
Without the dark how would we know the value of brightness
And without the presence of light, everything would be of the same hue
One cannot exist without the other, just as life cannot exist without death
