on a dark driveway
on a windy night
a father and a son
and Life
stand
"son" says he
"this is Life"
the son looks
and sees
black and red
and War
and Death
nightmares
horror
"son" says he
"this is also life"
the son is afraid
but a bright light
forever greater than evil
shows Love
Peace
infinite
the son reachers out
and touches Life
and understands


The author's comments:
Sometimes you feel like the whole world is against you. Sometimes you feel like you'll never see day again. But you have to remember, in those dark times, that there is happiness awaiting you. There are two sides of Life, and you have to choose which one to follow.
