The light

Post by Jesse »

Morose and shallow malaise is born
and cements within us loneliness laid down low
seek for safety amidst the woe
I assure to you that you'll find; everything--
and everything will always be alright!
In those darkest of nights
Take rest in somber lullaby
for you will surely find the light
a gift of sight for those lifeless eyes

All that's mad and diseased is but rainy day
tambourines pining for a cure; this ceaseless apathy
and oceans of darkened grandeur
pave the ways for the beautiful expanding
of understanding; the full breadth of which
pales beside the burning fires of the sun.

Within the darkness of your mind
a spark is loosed and set in motion
should you so choose to see, and not to shun
the unfolding of your scars
will be all that rightly delivers unto you
Joy, Warmth, and Love
Burning brighter than a thousand suns

It's warmth lifting you to places far
and far away from that morose, shallow, and empty start
When you find that light I propose to you
that you open wide and let inside
the spark that spawns such burning vivid light
and let it destroy the pain, and deliver you
from that dark eternal night.
Thus shall ye think of all this fleeting world:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream.
