When darkness descends upon you and you are blinded, you lose your way. You can’t go back, you can’t go forward. You are stuck. Then it’s time to pave another way. There are only so many ways to your destiny and back. One of them is paved and has been walked by many before you, but it’s easy to get lost. And when you do, you start paving another one. One that’s firm beneath your feet, and others’ after you. And soon you reach your destiny.
(It’s not so good but I just wanted to get it out so…)
When all else fails to come though and everything has faded to the darkness of the night. There is not hope left, no wish to live anymore and the future is in smoke, uncertain. And you are left alone in the blinding fog. There is a flicker of flame and you cautiously search around, in a vain hope of finding the source of the blessed flame. And you realize that that flame is none other than your own soul. And that flame, always there but undiscovered until then, burns brighter. And you know that you have the power to bring change, to conquer the world, to rule it.
It is during our darkest moments, that we must focus to see the light.
~ Aristotle Onasis
This quote is has become a great source of inspiration for me lately considering the conditions of my country. The killings, the bomb blasts, the bloodshed, the dying innocent people, it’s all very disturbing. This quote gives me hope to a better and brighter future. It gives me a will to bring change around me. When darkness is all around and there is no sign of hope anywhere, you have to bring hope from within you.
