La Mort

Light and Dark

Night of a life
The end of the day
Death, Rot, Decay
We all fear it
We all sense it
The end
La mort
Au revoir

We fear the dark
But why?
We are not of the dark
We are not subjects to it
We do not answer to it's call

For death is darkness a little while
And then light
Then, and only then do we shine our brightest
The lights of our lives
Whether dark or light
And they shine to inspire or drive away others
So then I say
Do not fear the dark
For the darkness shows the stars

Og Mandino.

"I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge."

-Og Mandino.
