A light in dark


That quiet night dogs were barking
A scary dark like demon was haunting
Surprised was I, witnessed a light in dark
Dim it was, fragile fighting with air
As if loneliness of dark made it to fear
No one was around the light
Uncared, stray it was as if neglected
Trying to shrink in it still had warmth
Around it were few playing moth
No oil left was to support the light
Strings didn’t want to burn any more
The more it tried more it fainted
Finally fell that defeated warrior
Sacrificed its life for light that martyr…
It died though didn’t give up
It fought with bravery did its job
No hurdle could screw up
Until it sacrificed its life it illuminated

    well written and imaginative. the light with it's inevitable attraction to it. very good use of words with some great lines.
    Finally fell that defeated warrior
    Sacrificed its life for light that martyr…
    It died though didn’t give up
    It fought with bravery did its job
    No hurdle could screw up
    Until it sacrificed its life it illuminated
    a ten + my friend. a very enjoyable read.

    Inspiring for someone so young--
    LIGHT
    In the beginning there was darkness,
    He said let there be light and urged on the cosmos;
    Vacant space transformed,
    thus instinctively good & evil arose,
    Illuminating, Persuading, a good many dark lives to something better,
    To lift up, to look up to the light,
    though we may cooperatively co-exist in the gutter. (Report) Reply
