Darkness or Light? – A Poem by Simran Kaur



Which will prevail?


Swimming through the mud

I reach out

Can I be pulled out?

What to hold onto?


I remember my soul

I remember my connection

A glimmer of light

Revealed within




Which will prevail?


The five thieves

A distraction

A poison

Shackled by one’s mind



Remembering truth

Prevailing through time

Touching knowledge within




Which will prevail?


Consciousness reawakens

Divine wisdom is offered

Darkness departs

Light shines through


Walking with guidance

The Path is revealed

Wisdom and Knowledge

Is given access




Which will prevail?


Revealed through the Guru

Light illuminates

Wisdom prevails

A path to liberation


Connecting with Soul

Connecting with God’s

Divine frequency

I am at peace


Light shines forth

Darkness is eliminated

A Guru’s blessing
