Turn Off The Sun

by Rania Moallem   Sep 15, 2010

Turn off the sun; my life still will shine from deep within
Dress me in black watch me glowing like I have never been
From darkness I was born, yet rebelled with a white skin
Demolish me in dimness, but even then I can potentially win

Beat me not, for darkness is my shield that cannot betray
What would a dying sun do, when I'm united to what's gray
A night spirited woman thrives through me whenever I pray
Embedded in my soul, with agony I live to fight another day

Luminance frightens the secrets I suppress
my misery fears the revelation of its hidden duskiness
for I mourn, I revive within my own mystery - nonetheless
I subsist the pain of the lonesome that I repress

Turn off the sun, watch how light will beam from my heart
for darkness is a part of me, from darkness I am a part
Like stars endlessly glow, yet can only be glimpsed at night
I too can shine through dimness, if not convert it into light.

    Sorry about the despising thing, but....
    not much about your presentations or profile, including name, shows that to be so...
    So...I'm 'guessing' you took on this angle on the subject as a challenge?
    absolutely successfully I say...

    Thank you for your very kind words re 'mid-September'...

    To be able to be happy without ouside help is the most stable kind of happiness, Nana. I think we should all strive to be happy just being ourselves. You worded this very eloquently.

    A night spirited woman thrives through me, when ever I pray
    Embedded in my soul, with agony I live to fight another day

    It takes courage to make yourself a worthwhile life:)

    Well done, hun:)

    5/5 Ingrid
