  1. Sunlight has a number of meanings... hope, possibility, the future. Mama is always commenting on the fact that "her plant" doesn't get enough sun.
    Darkness would have the opposite meaning.

  2. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here's another thought for you. Sunlight, and sun, are often associated with growth. (Plants grow better with sunlight.) This could mean "a better life." Darkness would be the absence of light, less growth. This could mean a dismal future!
