Dark is the new bright.

Slowly getting up in the dawn realising light breaking the darkness in front of my eyes, I feel secured to have blessed a new day by the Almighty. I slowly draw the curtain to let the dusty sunlight into my room.
I start my day and continue with my daily routine. I step out of my home and walk towards my college. I realise I sunned myself and feel a warm blanket around me, as it is one of those winter mornings where you feel cold as ice in the dawn but experience prickly heat in the afternoon. I think of playing with the sun the peek-a-boo way and suddenly start staring at the bright rising sun which I obviously can’t do for a long time. As I move my eyes away from the closest star of earth I experience a darkness in front of my eyes which turns into normality afterwards. I attend my few lectures and decide to bunk the latter one’s to spend some “me-time”. I head towards a sea side and sit calmly staring at the waves whilst they crash with the boulders. As time passes by, I notice the sun slowly bidding goodbye. At first I feel a warmth but then I start feeling desolated, not because the sun is about to set but because a strong realization hits me, hits me really hard.
The realization of ditching darkness right from the start of the day. We get up, ditch the darkness in front of our eyes, from our room amd throughout the day just because we always need light and we never fail to appreciate brightness. But who knows that darkness is beauty too? The sun provides us light and heat but what if there was no darkness? Would we ever be able to experience the beauty of our very own satellite, the Moon and those uncountable twinkling stars?
What if there was never a dark colour like black? We wouldn’t be able to enjoy those glitters and the sexiness of black colour in our materailistic things.
And those 3 am talks? The very own time of writers, artists and thinkers wouldn’t be so magical without darkness.
Also when a beam of light enters a dark room, the darkness supports it intensity making it look beautiful and brighter which also remains neglected.
Living in a society like ours, we always get attracted towards and appreciate fairness wherein we overlook the beauty that lies beneath duskiness and brown colour.
And even after the day ends constantly ditching darkness, it finds it’s way through the night and supports us through our dreams.
Lastly, the darkest souls are the only souls which have experienced the most of our living and still shine through the worst phases. These souls sometimes remains buried in dark because it takes a pure sophisticated soul to find beauty in darkness and one who truly believes that “Dark is the new bright”
