Give me the darkness, Take my light – An Inspirational Poem

Give me the darkness,
Take my light.
Into the fire of my heart,
I still shine bright.

Give me the darkness,
Take my light.
Into the deep dark night,
I still shine bright.

Give me the darkness,
Take my light.
Into the wilderness of beauty,
I still shine bright.

Give me the darkness,
Take my light.
Like the undying embers,
Like the shimmering stars,
Like the broken petals,
I still shine bright.

Give me the darkness,
Take my light.
Yet, the daybreak will come,
Splendid and divine.

Give me the darkness,
Take my light.
Remember, at the last stroke of the night,
The sun will still rise.

How many times will I fall? I break? I shatter? I cry? I scream? How far can your pain chase? And the darkness and the silence will keep haunting me? How far, will I go to prove my resilience, my strength, my power? To prove you that I can do, how strong will I have to be? To make you believe, that I can walk, I can dream, I can breathe, I can dance, I can sing? How long this dark night will remain the same? Heartless, demonic, and cruel? You may silence my voice, you may clip my wings, but remember, I will still fly, I will soar high.

You may find me rebel, carefree, and sometimes, a rule breaker, too. But I know who I am. Raw, real, and powerful. Raw like the crushed flowers, shattering on the ground. Real like the stars, flickering on the night sky. Powerful like the fire, burning the beauty into ashes. Maybe, a Phoenix is waiting there, at every door of darkness and brokenness.

Remember, the night may be dark, darker, the darkest. But at the last, it will end. And then, I will rise. I am not afraid of the night any more, for I have emerged brave and bold. Standing alone at the peak of the mountain, I roar, “Behold! A queen is reborn. Give me the darkness, take my light. To welcome the dawn, splendid, divine, I still shine bright, I still shine bright, I still shine bright.”
