Sitting and looking up

Inside Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay. Singapore

I sat and looked up
What's there to be seen?

The world has its moments of beauty
My eyes could see
Yet I wonder if these were meant for me?

For in those glimpses of beauty
One could see the shadows of darkness
For beauty often shines out better
When contrasted against that tinge of sadness

Who could truly read me?

Of course that moment of beauty was meant for you. Otherwise you would not have been there.

Beauty requires light and dark for God created them both. And joy can be found in both. You just have to look.
