Looking back…into the future

Looking back

On a few months

I think about the future

I had planned for myself…

I had not dreamt of

A bed of roses…

But at the same time

Didn’t expect a path of broken glass…

Shards of glasses which

Cut across my dreams

And prove once again

how foolishly we human beings

cling on too our decorated version of

Our preferred future!

Even though happiness can be found

In the darkest of times

One has to deal with darkness

Before seeing the first rays of Sun!

    Loved the way you ended the poem :

    Even though happiness can be found
    In the darkest of times
    One has to deal with darkness
    Before seeing the first rays of Sun

    I recollected the J K rowling quote :

    Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light
