To A Young Man - Poem by Bill Hamlin

Before me a light is shining-
I see it not but it is there!
I know it's presence for my soul sees-
I am a youth who sees not such things,
I am not allowed.
Only as years add their weight to
My being will my eyes perceive
The beauty of life.
The veil of years to come
Still blinds my eyes,
Even though I long to see.
I can but catch glimpses
As love, hate and fear shock my lids,
But darkness soon again prevails.
How long,
How far ahead is my vision
To be complete
