[Lit] "Light Comes Again"
Light Comes Again
Here I sit in the place I called home, as I watch the sunset for the last time on this earth. Such an ordinary thing, often taken for granted. I have watched the sun set a thousand times before, but now in my last hours, I observe the true beauty of it, the last thing to be seen in my life. The sun inches lower and lower, towards the red horizon. A glow is cast through the leaves of the forest. My forest, the barrier protecting me from the impurity of the world. I gaze up at the clouds, outlined pink from the sun's casted rays. A storm is coming to bid me farewell. I'll miss the feeling of each individual drop of rain, rolling off my skin to come to a rest on the ground below. I look up once again to the sky, a deep shade of red, beginning to fade to violet. The sun is now partially shrouded by the leaves of my forest, telling me my time is close. I think of my life, and I regret nothing. Everything happened as it was intended to. A tear streams down my cheek, though not a tear of sorrow. I glance to the sun one last time, then shut my eyes to the world. Goodbye. I will be back soon.
