In the light of my darkness
I walk the world with thoughts so mighty,
Preferably, my eyes are potent weapons
But, I reckon the light is my foreman.
The echo of any footsteps, any voice touch my ears
And I try to use it as a tool, to empower my thoughts
That I direct towards befriending darkness.
Darkness, not in my bosom, but in my oculi
So powerful that I am dubious about my actions:
Will I get hurt, or will someone else be hurt?
I want to see my mother and my father and my dearest brother
It is not always about the mind’s eye
Sometimes thoughts overpower my actions,
Shan’t they be the happiest on my success?
Well, a win over life, skiing, parachuting, and swimming
Running, painting and writing
Reading, exploring and talking-
Without any aid,
Won’t that be my achievement?
I would say, befriending darkness brought light to my world.
Note: This is a free verse poem I wrote for the specially abled people who have the courage to befriend darkness and light up their lives.
