“Stars Can’t Shine Without Darkness”

Published by


“Stars can’t shine without darkness.”
Then we wouldn’t see their light.
Without the presence of shadows,
they’d never shine so bright.

But, sometimes, the dark can be a scary place
when all you can see is pitch black.
Just remember the dark is a temporary state.
The light will always come back.

I have struggled to start writing poetry again ever since I got help for my depression. My depression was always my inspiration for my poetry. A friend of mine is a teacher and told me of a technique where you pick a favorite quote or song lyric and use that as the first line then build your poem off of that. And finally, months later, I picked up and a pen and began to write. It's short, but that's because I'm just getting started again and I didn't want it to turn into something I wasn't happy with. I am vey happy with how this turned out and I hope to keep writing more again.
