Beneath the clouds

Lies a guiding source

One that steers us 

Out of the abyss of night. 

Through the jigsaw of rustling leaves

A glimmer of golden light 

struggles to peek through. 

While not wholly visible, 

it continues to shine. 

One day, the rays will outstretch 

beyond the trees,

Beam upon your face,

As proof that light always prevails. 

Even while grappling to rise,

So will you. 

Like the sun, 

You will shine again, 

You will shine beyond the leaves.
