My Light

It is hard sometimes,

to rise above it –

the fear

the hate

the things we covet

my own light dims

when anger rages –

the news

the trauma

locking kids in cages

No! Not me!

I will not fall victim –

to bullies

or monsters

I will cling to wisdom

no platform bully

nor energy vampire

can harden

or darken

my light which transpires

It is hard sometimes,

to rise above it –

the fear

the hate

the things we covet

but I will rise

on wings of doves

fighting fear

and hate

with nothing but love

    just re-read 3 times what she wrote and the more I read, it went deeper and deeper. Just via words she can make someone feel so deep, imagine how deep is her soul actually. Beautiful beyond words.
