I’ve not moved, and yet fought a huge battle inside,
The Empire Strikes Back, times four hundred and five,
Evil took no prisoners, genocide ensued,
By those wanting to extinguish, the light and the truth.
The Dark Side ensured many things were destroyed,
Turned to dust, and the fragments now lurk in the void,
But there is A New Hope, the war isn’t finished,
I must use The Force, lest the light be diminished.

As you have probably noticed, this piece has an epic cinematic feel to it, with many Star Wars references throughout. I have been a long-time fan of this record breaking Lucasfilm saga, and I’m excited that the 9th installment will soon be with us… a week before Christmas this year!
Anyway, back to my poem, which touches on extremely painful internal struggles, such as times when it seems that negativity and darkness, are trying to completely eradicate the light within us. As tough as these moments are, they are merely battles, the war is not concluded until we give up, something I do not recommend anyone doing.
People often ask why bad things happen to good people, and I feel it can be for a number of reasons, which include… to highlight our character and test our resolve; to give us something to fight for and motivate us; to help us to find our true strength or calling; things that George Lucas captured perfectly in these films.
While no one actively seeks to go through a dark experience, when one comes along, it makes us reevaluate everything, and although the initial outlook is usually bleak, us finding a way to come to terms with it or use it for fuel (positively), is how we generate the most personal growth. So, find your inner Jedi, my friends!
Love and Respect always,
