Poems about Darkness and Light

Poems on Darkness
by Sri Chinmoy

DARKNESS AND LIGHT

Darkness wants
To devour light.
Light wants
To transform darkness.
God says to darkness:
“Darkness, stop!”
God says to light:
“Light start!
Lo, you have won the goal.”

IN THE DARKNESS

In the darkness of my doubts
I know not what to say.
In the darkness of my jealousies
I know not what to feel.
In the darkness of my insecurities
I know not what to become.

DARKNESS DIES

In Immortality’s Light,
Darkness dies
Infinity’s Smiles,
Eternity cries.

STRUGGLE AGAINST DARKNESS

Struggle!
Struggle vehemently against darkness!
Your soul, the blue bird inside your heart,
Desperately wants from you
The transformation of your earth-life.

- Sri Chinmoy
