Hi folks, I am new to your forum I have never actually done any writing but recently tried my hand a little poetry, so see what you think.

OUT OF DARKNESS

When your days are dark
and you are feeling down
when you try your best
but just cannot turn it around.

Take some time out
lock the door
into yourself
you can withdraw.

This place inside
can be whatever you desire
a place to unleash
your imaginative fire.

You control
what happens here
there is nothing
that you have to fear.

So make it bright
and you will see clear
the path that you
have been looking for.

Now bring it to
your concious mind
and leave those dark
down trodden days behind.
