Light in a Dark World
Sometimes, the world is dark,
Without seeing, there’s no way to make your mark.
The people stumble around and fall,
We’re like corpses, us all.
Sometimes, I blink, to make sure I’m not sleeping,
Feeling all alone, my soul is seeping.t
I turn and turn, looking for a color,
But I see none, because the world is like no other.
I cradle my head in my hands, going crazy,
Why am I the only one not lazy?
I open my mouth to speak to the world:
But all I hear is silence, not a word unfurled.
Right when my heart was ceding:
I heard a creeping, a creeping.
I turned and my eyes burned:
For there was a flicker of light, returned.
I smiled and stood, looking around,
Did anyone else see what I had found?
I took the light and watched it spread,
Now we all were no longer dead.
