That was a mediocre night,
Until the power went off.
Dismantled the lower cupboard and attic,
Still the candles weren’t handy.
Emergency lamp was always on my sight,
But I couldn’t find it in the dark blindness.
Oh my phone torch,
I fished the charger, but where’s the phone?!
Least I could light up the stove,
Rushed to the kitchen and burnt my fingers.
After fifteen minutes of bulldozing the house,
In a fraction of second the power came.
I’ve created a whole mess,
In the name of searching for light.
Most of the darkness are ephemeral;
Light isn’t mandatory.
Stay still, calm and composed;
Until the darkness passes away.
Better not to muddle your kingdom,
In the pursuit of bright and brilliance.
