Poem: The Nature of Light

The Nature of Light

You were not made to live in these anonymous places
in the midst of the bland faces that stand in long lines
waiting for grey food and more and more of the same.


You were made, each hair on your head,
for a life unique and sparkling
by a God who loves every tender cell
of his precious creation,

who wants you to to glisten in his light,
and find peace in a power not your own,
but his.
