Darkness, cracks and light

There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.

– Leonard Cohen

Like a sharp ray of light sliding into a dark room

Like that soft burst of light at dawn

Like a light bulb fluttering on

Like that, like this

The crack appears

Right here, right there

In the darkest moments

There’s a crack right there

Even when unseen

Because

There’s [always] a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.

– Leonard Cohen
