Reversing Darkness

Recently a friend showed me a reverse poem and I could hardly wait to try it out. I am in a season of hopefulness (my nice way of saying things aren’t exactly going my way) and I needed a pick-me-up. This was a fun way for me to encourage myself.  This is my attempt at reverse poetry.


Sorrow didn’t win

Because Light lives in me

The flame of forever burns

Brighter than the darkness lurking near

Pain is just a shadow

Illuminated by Love

Escorting the tears I shed

Leaving through the door marked “Not Welcome Here”

Deep sighing lost today

Because the joy of the Lord arrived

Breathing hope into my situation

Once cloudy skies are clear

Psalm 43 5

Psalm 43:3 & 4

3  Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. 4  Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the lyre, O God, my God.
