“We all go through things from time to time. You are not the only one to feel both the beauty and the pain in life.”

“Does this darkness have a name? Is it your name?” These powerful words closed an emotional episode of the popular CW television show, “One Tree Hill”, an episode in which bullied teenager Jimmy Edwards took his own life, and Dan Scott took the life of his older brother, Keith. These words still resonate with many, taking an introspective look at life and its innumerable difficulties. There is, however, light within the darkness, offering a glimmer of hope for a better tomorrow. In his new book of poetry, In the Light of Darkness (published by Trafford Publishing), Daniel Crowley creates for readers an image for the unseen and unexpected, connecting the threads of life's weaving journey upon the harmony of love, loss ,and, ultimately, hope.

“It’s a connection to feel and appreciate what is real in each of our lives,” Crowley explains. “We all go through things from time to time. You are not the only one to feel both the beauty and the pain in life.”

An excerpt from the poem “Morning in America”:

rising upon the earths dew
streams peak over the mountains top
rays of crimson red, white
and blue
blossom upon the dawn of a new day
in the swallows of natures breath
sighing in content
with a strength in masses
evolution, mankind
awoken to its dream

In the Light of Darkness captures the essence of everyday life and is sure to entertain and inspire readers to take an introspective look at themselves.
