The eerie silence of the night, 
Reminds me of my horrible past. 
Sleep evades me as I try as I might. 
I wish the night could slip into oblivion fast.

It was a horrible night when I learned my dad died. 
I felt completely devastated. 
I cried until my tears completely dried. 
My grief simply skyrocketed. 

I am scared of this darkness that engulfed my life. 
I feel I am half alive and hollow. 
My fear of losing my dear ones cuts my heart like a knife. 
With whom should I share my sorrow? 

A part of me scolds me for not being brave. 
And then I look up to my mother. 
She gives me courage and asks me not to cave 
Into pessimism; And not let tough situations for me to bother. 

In spite of facing severe humiliation, 
She never did complain. 
She chose to live courageously, giving me inspiration. 
A stone becomes a beautiful statue after going through the pain. 

Then I saw on TV, a widow of a martyred soldier,  putting on a brave face. 
She said she would live for her son and also encourage him to serve the nation. 
Selfless people like her make the world a better place. 
I salute her patriotism and dedication. 

Pain is the greatest teacher for us. 
It makes us strong with every test. 
We befriend patience and endurance. 
Pain helps to bring out our best. 

No one in this world is happy entirely. 
Some are poor, Some wealthy, some are sick. 
A positive approach towards life helps surely. 
Having the wealth of optimism does the trick. 

Now I am not scared of the dark night. 
I am prepared to face my worst fear. 
Because now I see a ray of light. 
To make the darkness disappear.
