2013 VOF Poetry The Silver Lining

The Silver Lining
In the darkness of your own world You will see a silver lining
In the midst of frustration You will receive a great breakthrough
In the middle of nowhere You will see your thoughts amplified
Through the silver lining: World Pulse

When the door in your life is closed You will see a window open
When you are weak You will receive a great strength
When all seems to be quite You will hear a loud boom
Through the silver lining: World Pulse

There in the valley of hopelessness
There in the ocean of frustration
There confronted with cultural barriers
Stand the Silver Lining: World Pulse

(I hope that makes sense, but it's late and my brain's on strike! Do ask if you want clarification!)
