Light - Poem by Sarah Cotnam

THE LIGHT
the light the light
CAME
POURING


IN!
and from the East

and

From the West

was,
this

light

LOOK

and let the star light burn bright into your eyes
until you cannot see the darkness anymore
what kind of darkness?
all. the emotional- the negative -the sour -the painful -the closed-eyed darkness

LOOK

and let the star light burn in and
accept the soft brightness that the eyes can tolerate
until you have retained just enough light
to brim with joy, and happiness, and goodness and sweetness
all of the emotional that invites others to find you
warm and good and nice and approachable and personable and accepting
and good and nice
and good

LOOK

it is just light that we needed
to reflect
our goodness
