Let Shine The Light


When comes the time to raise the humble mast,
To give release to feelings of the past,
Surrendering the lies of what we've known,
And take light of the beauties which are shown,
Often understanding comes in vain,
Until we're faced with trials once again.
The light, which once seemed bright, will then look faint,
When once compared; a sinner to a saint,
And with this unmistaken discontent
Comes hatefulness, without direct intent.
Then, as these feelings darken tainted hearts
The full glow that's within cannot impart
So, as surrounding fog infests the soul,
And slowly takes away what makes one whole,
The tiny spark of hope that lingers on
Ensures that, once it's conquered, dark is gone
