Thick is the Darkness ~ William Ernest Henley

Thick is the darkness—
    Sunward, O, sunward!
  Rough is the highway—
    Onward, still onward!

  Dawn harbors surely
    East of the shadows.
  Facing us somewhere
    Spread the sweet meadows.

  Upward and forward!
    Time will restore us:
  Light is above us,
    Rest is before us.

William Ernest Henley
