Everywhere is Everything

PROMPT: The Unseen

4
Everywhere is darkness,
everywhere is light.
There is always day
and there is always night.

Everywhere is loneliness,
everywhere is connection.
There are always people
if not always reception.

Everywhere is noise,
everywhere is silence.
There is always quiet 
hiding amongst the violence. 

Everywhere is broken,
everywhere is pristine.
There may still be beauty
waiting to be seen.

Everywhere is...

Everywhere is everything:
Turmoil and calm,
Forward and backward,
Ancient and modern.

The pejorative and laudatory
tangle into one.
Though you cannot see it
does not mean it cannot become.

When the dark is omnipresent
and night appears eternal,
stars remain beyond your vision
lighting the ethereal.

When land appears distant 
and sea is all that surrounds,
just beyond the horizon
may lie welcome sands. 

Everywhere is despair,
everywhere is hope.
Living in unseen optimism
is just one way to cope.

    This is so full of feeling, it's amazing. This line, "There is always quiet
    hiding amongst the violence." is so beautifully calming. Great job!
