Reena’s Exploration Challenge #110- Darkness and light- A journey of self-Discovery

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
