The Power of Light

Good morning! Happy Monday! I have a super busy day ahead of me. I just wanted to wish you all a great day and leave you with a poem.


Somewhere within

This heart I lay.

Am I awake or

Is it a fool’s paradise?

An echo of a holler

Bellows back

Mimicking my heart as it

Pleads to the master

To abandon its chains

Among those with broken dreams,

Devoured into a misled world

Love that’s like a sieve

And wicked thoughts

En-wrapped in fire…

Slowly it draws you in

A longing to find a place

To hide…

Echoes like a breath taken

On a cold day

The grey surrounds

Overwhelming the streets

Engulfing souls,

Overpowering the sun

Creating withdrawal of light

The clock ticks but never stays

An army of ignorance invades

Driving your mind to the land of oz

And your body to the river of lust

Then where is time?

Among the streets catching the wind

Does the master listen and reach out his love?

Will he carry my heart through the path of thorns?

And keep it from drowning in the sorrow

From the throbs of other hearts

Will he excuse what is only natural?

Adapting to a world

That lacks a dawn

Will he warm the hearts of those that have grown cold?

So while we engage

In the shadows of the night

Leaving time with no demand

The place I lay is filled with love

Because I took a stand

I fought the battle 

The master’s hand I held

And because I loved with such belief

He caught me when I fell.

Although my chains

May hold me down

Give, and you will be forever and ever

Above your grey surroundings in a world

Saturated in light 

The golden crown
