Light

Light will not be grasped in a clenched fist.
It is not seen by a closed heart.
Light will not lift a spirit chained to stones of circumstance.
Peace lives between the molecules of sunbeams.
But it is invisible to closed eyes.

Darkness has enveloped a hopeless soul.
It will not be penetrated without enlightened thought.
Darkness pins one down in crushing guilt.
Peace rests above a tortured turned-down head,
And waits.
