Before the darkness sets

on a new horizon,

peace will settle over

hearts that ponder anew

their vision of the dawn.

After all the darkness

there will be but one light

shining along the path.

For some two roads appear.

Who will say which is right?

Now, for those who pondered

there is more than light,

absence of darkness.

And always—

Be kind. Be brave. Be you.
