Alvin Mingle


Light


Look into the Light
The stars are so bright
The layers of life peel away
Has this burden come to stay?

Look into the Light
The shadows begin to dance
Reality has suddenly become so bright
Surely, I’m not falling into a trance?

Look into the Light
The past transgressions haven’t taken to flight
My burdens in Life, haven’t ceased to Fight
Am I alone at this time of NIGHT?

Look into the Light
Bright stars shine so bright
My Life on earth is certainly not done
Look into the light, before the final flight.
