Darkness, the absence of light. Take it literally or the other way, it basically means one thing — the inability to find your way. In this life, getting lost in the dark is inevitable. It’s up to us to overpower the gloom with a flicker comprised of courage, hope, and faith.
Because no matter how vast the darkness is, how much it renders us blind and lost, even the tiniest glow proves strong enough to restore your vision, your sense of direction. As long as you’re alive, there’s always that ember within you that refuses to die. It shines and it burns. And you’re reminded that there’s always a way out of the dark.
