Oh Light - Poem by Tracy Scheepers

Oh light, oh light, you shine so bright tonight
You naively place your rays upon them
You give them shine and oh they shine so bright
But soon it will be them that you condemn
They feed and feed on rays you freely give
Until there’s nothing but an empty space
While your light fades and you just want to live
Their ignorance is your true fall from grace
But picking up those pieces is your gift
Oh lost little light don’t give up just yet
And off of the floor you yourself shall lift
As your spark of light is not done, it’s set
Now go out and be a lovely sunflower
And catch some rays from a life giving shower
