There’s a light on the horizon – the flicker seemed so faint.
I kept my eye upon it, as its soft whisper stirred in my heart.
The light’s a distraction from more immediate matters at hand.
My disbelief and vagueness , my social acceptance, my hate , my pain
my fear, my security, my sweat, my life – what’s left of it,
In need I walk, sometimes in kindness, mostly indifference , can’t afford to walk in love
I seek comfort in my toys, but they conspire against me – it’s a one way relationship
That light is too distracting, need to put it out - that’s what I’ve been told.
As I look upon the light – I hear its whisper softly
Like a melody that sooths a child, it quiets my hurried soul
Deeper is my longing than the darkness can avail
Upon the light I gaze surprised to see myself
To walk in love - a gift given me, in spite of disbelief
My intoxication grows as I let the light engulf me
Upon my fellow man I see the darkness fall
But there’s a light on the horizon
