The Lighthouse Beacon - Poem by Sophia White

Assurances. Assurances.
“I love you.”
“Never leave you.”
Then a storm.

The lighthouse beacon
Shines with light
Loving light.
Then explodes.

Promises. Promises.
“It’s alright.”
“We’ll get through.”
Then the sirens sound.

Why?

Prayers. Prayers.
Giv’n with tears
Faithful tears.
Then knife words.

The lighthouse beacon
Shines with light
Loving light.
Then explodes.

Laughter. Laughter.
Smiles and joy
Rapturous joy!
Then Hell.

Why?

The lighthouse beacon
(Meant to protect!)
Guides the ship –
Into the rocks.

WHY?
