I have known darkness,
I have been so dark
That any light that fell on me
Disappeared inside.

I have known light,
I have shone so brightly
That I added more light
Into the world.

We think we need to absorb light,
A little more light to be happy,
But It’s not until you become the light
That you realize happiness
Is in spreading it,
Not absorbing it.

It’s all an elaborate plan
Of the gods or the universe or whatever,
They made the world with mirrors,
The light is always reflected back
From you and to you.
The light absorbed is the light that died,
But we can always create more light,
All we have to do is shine,
However unnatural it feels
Smile.
