Poetry Month Nothing is Different 13 of 30

Light Will Come One Day by Mozamell Hossain Shahdom

Nothing is different
in darkness;
the trees are still green,
the grass still bends
in the wind.

Nothing is different
in darkness;
the cats still prowl
the birds still rest
in their nests.

Nothing is different
in darkness;
you can still sit at the table,
the door still opens
into the world.

Though it may seem
harder to find the way,
look up at the stars,
light your candle,
you can find
your way.
