When you find yourself stuck
Drowning in the depth of it all
Clinging to the light above you
And praying for help.... any help
That’s when they say the familiar phrase
You need the dark to appreciate the light
As if suffering is a rite of passage
The darkest of nights all end in sun
But what if I wish I had never seen it?
Never seen the sunlight?
Or felt it gently touching my skin?
What if that would make it all easier?
Living in pain would not be as hard
If I had never known peace
Living without you wouldn’t be so hard
If you had never met me
Would I miss the sun if I never knew?
Never felt it’s warmth?
Would I even care at all?
Or would I know deep down that something was missing?
I wish I had never seen the sunlight
Because then all this darkness
would just be life and no one would know
That things could get better
