And The Others

Some find The Light in literature;
Others in fine art,
And some persist in being sure
The Light shines in the heart.

Some find The Light in alcohol;
Some, in the sexual spark;
Some never find The Light at all
And make do with the dark,

And one might guess that these would be
A gloomy lot indeed,
But, no, The Light they never see
They think they do not need.

    Beautiful poem, thank you for sharing. I loved the peaceful way of pointing our the differences without pushing the finger towards right or wrong, could be the voice of a true heart songs of those who seem to be the light.
