To find the light within

The single lamp

To guide me through

All the dusks and darks.

Some are implied,

Others are stark,

The moon is gone

So the lamp is lit.

The lights are turned on

Fireworks go off

People sit and pray

For the upcoming days.


*Diwali is the festival of lights that lasts for five days; the main point of the festival is the victory of good over evil.
