Light - Poem by Jay Brown

The weight our hearts bare, is all but light.
Our secrets need to be brought to light.

Prisoners cry in their cells.
They beg to see the day's light.

Children in their pitch black rooms
seek to find glimpses of light.

The man who's poor heart no longer beats
Walks his lonely soul into the light.

Give me courage and grant me the power
to bring my skeletons into the light.
