Searching for Specks

There are dark places where
the only light that can shine is
a speck of minuscule hope
searching for reason,

any little reason
to stay alive;

from that often unseen dot of a speck
the glow of rejuvenation can spring.

There have been quite a few times in my recent life
when I have been thankful for my cowardice
held back from ending it once and for all
and instead have decided to grasp
that morsel of hope and
make a grab at life.
